Conditions were not immediately available for others injured in the crash, though each was expected to recover.

Emergency crews responded to a report of a crash at the intersection of University Avenue and 3700 North shortly after 4:45 p.m. Sunday, according to Provo police.

Police said three cars were waiting in the southbound left-turn lane on University Avenue when a Pleasant Grove utility truck came up behind them and struck the third car in line, a red station wagon, and pushing it into the two vehicles in front of it.

The utility truck appeared to be traveling about 50 mph, which is the road’s speed limit, at the time of the crash, Provo police detective Nick Dupaix said Sunday.

The crash remains under investigation.
