When we are heading home from work, we want to put our feet up and put on the game. We want to spend time with our family and unwind. We rarely think about the drive home. But when someone is panicked and driving, when they have fled the scene of a crime, they can become a danger and a lethal one at that. At the Jardine Law Offices P.C. P.C., our Utah car accident lawyers want to discuss a recent fatal car accident in Salt Lake City, Utah.
What Happened in This Utah Fatal Car Accident
In December 2020, a man was killed when an SUV collided with his vehicle in Salt Lake City. The SUV was fleeing from a previous hit-and-run accident. The SUV was traveling at such a rate that when it struck the vehicle, it rolled, and the driver was killed instantly. The SUV ran a stop sign attempting to flee from an earlier accident it had caused.
At the time, the accident is being investigated as a possible DUI. The suspect went to the hospital with serious injuries.
Car Accidents Can Cause Massive Amounts of Trauma and Pain
Most car accidents do not have many consequences. Most of the time, it is a fender bender, and after a couple of days in the body shop and after our insurance handles the rest, we don’t think much of it. But occasionally, these accidents have repercussions that are tragic and painful. At the Jardine Law Offices P.C. P.C., our Utah car accident attorneys find that many careless acts lead to undue pain and, at worst, a death. We seek justice for those impacted by a car accident and want to speak to you today.
The victim and family members of a car accident have to deal with such problems such as:
- Loss of stability in the home

We do not want you to suffer any longer under these kinds of burdens. We want you to seek the compensation you deserve so you can be made whole and not worry if there is another bill coming or how you will pay for next month’s groceries.
