TOOELE COUNTY, Utah – A medical helicopter was dispatched after an auto-pedestrian accident on Highway 36 Friday night.

Tooele County dispatch officials confirmed the accident had taken place near mile post 65 and that a medical helicopter had been dispatched.

The incident occurred sometime around 7:35 p.m., and a 20-year-old man who suffered two broken legs was taken by air to a hospital.
