During the afternoon of Wednesday, a head-on collision occurred, and it was suspected that the driver was impaired. Further investigation revealed that the driver had been arrested less than 12 hours earlier for suspicion of DUI in a distinct incident. At approximately 1:10 p.m., the driver’s vehicle veered into the inside lane, then into the median, and ultimately into oncoming traffic, resulting in a collision with another vehicle head-on. At least two commercial vehicle cameras captured the collision, which the sheriff’s office shared with KSL 5 on Wednesday evening. Sgt. Spencer Cannon reported that, in total, five vehicles were damaged in the crash, but the driver sustained the most significant injuries and was airlifted to the hospital.
This is a devastating crash and an awful experience for anyone to go through. We hope the people in the other cars are recovering speedily. This just shows had bad a crash can be, we are glad that the crash wasn’t bigger but there should have never been a crash in the first place. We need to minimize drinking while driving because of outcomes like this. If you have been in a situation like this came to A-1 Driving School and we are glad to help with all your driving needs.
