WEBER COUNTY, Utah - Seven teens are all recovering after a car crash on State Road 39 near Milepost 42 near the Rich County and Weber County line.

Weber Fire officials say four of the teens were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The other three were transported with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies say the Honda Accord the teens were in went off a cliff just after midnight on Thursday and landed in a tree 120 feet off the road.

They also say that the car was only supposed to hold 5 people.

"Speed does appear to be a factor. Up in this area, the speed limit on this stretch of road is 40 miles an hour. Right now we're guessing a speed of 70 plus." said Sgt. Mark Horton with the Weber County Sherriff's Office.

Police tell Fox 13 that all of the teens are under the age of 16.

Crews say the rescue was difficult because the car was over the side of a cliff.

Deputies say that one of the teens crawled up the cliff to get cell service and call for help.

The identities of the teens have not been released but deputies say they are all from the Ogden area.
