SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a crash in Salt Lake County that left a man seriously injured was spurred by road rage.

Utah Highway Patrol officials say the crash occurred Saturday evening in Magna on State Road 201.

According to witnesses, the drivers of an SUV and a BMW were arguing and then chasing each other.

Sgt. Jacob Cox says the driver of the SUV lost control and the vehicle rolled several times.

A male passenger who was not using a seat belt was ejected.

He is in critical condition.

The driver, 30-year-old Brandon Atkinson of West Valley City, and another passenger only suffered minor injuries.

Cox says Atkinson was arrested for DUI with intoxicants.

According to Cox, drug paraphernalia and drugs were found in the car.

The BMW driver fled the area.
