OGDEN, Utah – One man was taken to the hospital Monday afternoon after a crash in Ogden caused a van to become trapped behind the cab of a semi-trailer-truck.

A minivan was heading westbound on 1150 S. near 5600 W. shortly after 12:00 p.m., when a 45-year-old male driver drifted into the eastbound lanes and collided with a semi-trailer-truck, Lt. Matt Jensen with the Weber County Sheriff’s Office, said.
