PROVO, Utah — A Corvette traveling at a high speed left the roadway, rolled down a hill, and fell off an embankment. One of the two people in the vehicle is in critical condition. The other is being treated for non life-threatening injuries. 
 
On Wednesday evening, a single vehicle crash occurred in the area of 4800 North University Avenue.
 
Just after 10:20 p.m. two passengers in a silver Corvette encountered a severe car accident. The vehicle was speeding in the area of Foothill Drive. The car caused minor damage to another vehicle and then struck a jersey barrier.

The vehicle caught fire when it came to a halt. 
 
The Provo Fire Department and police reported to the scene of the accident.
