Two accidents on I-84 on Friday happened within 40 minutes of each other and left the interstate littered with vehicles and debris.
The first crash occurred about 10:25 a.m., and involved a 2007 Suzuki Forenza with three occupants, according to Lt. Lee Perry of the Utah Highway Patrol.  The vehicle was westbound heading to Idaho when the driver, a 20-year-old male from Salt Lake City, became distracted and drifted off the road.  The vehicle then rolled near mile marker 3.
The driver and his 18-year-old wife were transported by ambulance to the Bear River Valley Hospital.  A 15-year-old male passenger suffered multiple compound fractures and was transported by Air-Med to Primary Children’s Hospital. All three were wearing seatbelts.
At approximately 11:10 a.m., the second crash involving three eastbound vehicles occurred at about mile marker 30.
Perry said a semi traveling in the slow lane had just crested the hill and was starting on the downhill grade when a pickup pulling a cargo trailer and driven by a 76-year-old male from Missouri changed into the fast lane to pass the semi.
