OGDEN, Utah (AP) - An Idaho woman was seriously injured after her car collided with a semitrailer in Box Elder County.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/2dTmeU9 ) the crash happened around 3:30 p.m. Saturday on I-84.

The 74-year-old driver had to be extricated and was rushed to the hospital in serious condition.

The 57-year-old male driver of the semi suffered minor injuries.
