A herd of elk crossing near Mesa Falls Scenic Byway caused an injury car crash involving multiple vehicles. Officials say a vehicle pulling a trailer stopped in the northbound lane of traffic while the herd crossed the highway. Another vehicle did not see the herd but noticed the stopped vehicle and attempted to pass striking the elk and then head-on into another vehicle stopped for the herd in the opposite direction of traffic. Police reported an air ambulance took the driver who failed to stop to a nearby medical center. Both vehicles involved in the accident contained passengers that required medical attention. These persons were taken to a nearby hospital by ground ambulance for evaluation of their injuries. The car accident closed highway US 20 for about three hours.
