Vehicle careens off of the North Ogden Divide

A woman driving her Jeep northbound on Tuesday lost control of her car and drove off the Liberty side of the North Ogden Divide. 

She was transported by AirMed to a local hospital with complaints of not being able to feel her legs and experiencing chest pain. Her current condition is unknown.

The investigation is ongoing but early indications point toward brake failure.

This is the second accident in less than 24 hours that police have responded to on the Divide where a vehicle has gone off of the edge. On Monday, a woman intentionally drove her truck off the road in a failed suicide attempt.

The Sheriff’s Office is advising motorists to exercise caution while driving on steep, mountainous roadways.
