A head-on collision in Northern Utah has left drivers of both vehicles in the hospital.

The accident happened on Friday when 26-year-old Alicia Fithian was heading north on U.S. Highway 89-91 in Logan and crossed over the median.

Fithian drove her white Hyundai Sonata into the southbound lane and struck a blue Chevrolet Cobalt driven by 24-year-old Derrik Miller.

An investigation into the accident continues, but police say the drivers of both vehicles were traveling at a speed of at least 60 miles per hour when they collided.

Fithian and Miller were extricated from their vehicles while traffic was diverted to allow for a medical helicopter to land on the highway. Miller was flown to a hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Fithian was taken by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital and later transported to another hospital where she is reported to be recovering.
