Garland, UT – Two Airlifted Following Crash On I-15 Near Riverside

Garland, UT (August 14, 2022) – Two people were taken to an area medical facility for treatment of injuries after an accident on Sunday, August 14th in Box Elder County.  

Garland fire crews responded to reports of a crash on Interstate 15 in the area of Riverside at about 7:00 p.m.  

Upon their arrival, they discovered that a driver had safely escaped from one of the vehicles while the passenger from another required extrication.  

Both victims were med-flighted to area hospitals. No details regarding their conditions have been released. 

The cause of the collision is under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Motor vehicle crashes commonly leave their victims with severe, debilitating, and even potentially fatal injuries. Severe internal bleeding, collapsed or punctured lungs, internal bleeding, broken ribs, and internal bleeding are just some of the severe injuries that can result from serious car accidents. 

However, the most frequent kinds of injuries that stem from Utah car crashes include: 

  • Injuries to the Neck and Chest: Whiplash is the most common crash injury. It is caused by the sudden and extreme back and forth motion of the neck and/or head, causing tearing, straining, and other injuries to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The seriousness of a whiplash injury can range from relatively trivial to quite extreme. In some cases, victims experience vocal cord paralysis following an incident. 
  • Injuries to the Head and Back: Back injuries are a fairly typical byproduct of auto collisions and can vary from nerve damage and spinal cord damage to paralysis and death. Collision victims may also encounter pain, numbness, or tingling in their extremities for the rest of their lives.

A head injury is one of the more critical collision-related injuries. Vehicle occupants, even ones who are wearing their seat belts properly, can smack their heads on the dashboard or the steering column, or be struck in the face with an airbag as it deploys.
