Milford, UT (June 22, 2021) – Two people died when their car struck a building following an accident in Milford on Monday, June 21st.
The accident took place at about 9:30 p.m. when a motorcycle and a car were driving northbound on Main Street in the area of 400 South when a collision caused both drivers to lose control of their vehicles.
The car spun, struck a light pole and then a building before coming to a stop.
The motorcycle crashed just south of the car.
The man and woman in the car were pronounced dead on the scene.
The male motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital with non-critical injuries.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
An auto accident happens almost every 10 minutes in Utah. About every 23 minutes, a Utah resident receives a significant crash-related injury, and every 36 hours, someone in the state dies in a motor vehicle accident.
Car accidents have a troubling effect on the state’s residents. Additionally, they are also one of the leading sources of untimely deaths within the state. As noted by the Utah Highway Safety Office, 52,287 traffic crashes took place in Utah in 2012. These crashes left 22,325 victims with some form of injury and violently ended 243 lives. 2012 also had the lowest rate of crash fatalities in the state since 1974.
