Clearfield, UT (August 27, 2022) – A man in his late 20s died after he was thrown from a truck that overturned on State Route 193 in Clearfield on Saturday, August 27th.
The incident occurred at about 5:30 p.m. on State Route 193 in the area of 650 East when a collision between an eastbound Jeep Gladiator and a Honda Odyssey caused the truck to flip, throwing at least two people into the roadway.
Paramedics and police arrived on the scene and began administering life-saving efforts to one of the injured passengers, who was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.
A woman from the Jeep and three occupants from the minivan were all taken by ambulances to local hospitals in non-critical conditions.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Vehicle rollover collisions can be complex in terms of sorting out liability and require the proficiency of a competent and experienced lawyer who has the resources to adequately investigate the event and secure full and fair compensation for your losses.
A rolling automobile also poses a threat to others. A rolling automobile can run into other vehicles, structures, pedestrians, cyclists, or utility poles. They are also able to block traffic and flinging debris into the other traffic lanes. After the car comes to an uncontrolled stop, responders at or near the area can be struck by oncoming traffic attempting to circumvent the wreckage.
Crashes involving overturned vehicles are very different from other kinds of crashes that leave the vehicles involved right-side up. There are many factors that could possibly play a role when a vehicle rollover happens, each of which greatly raises the probability of serious injuries.
Velocity is the speed of an object in a given direction and it is a huge factor in rollover crashes because, irrespective of the impact’s origin, it has to be strong enough to make the vehicle overcome the engineering safeguards put in place by the vehicle manufacturers to cause the vehicle to roll.
