Lehi, UT (July 16, 2022) – A collision involving at least four vehicles resulted in injuries to the people involved on Saturday, July 16th in Lehi.
According to sources, the incident occurred in the southbound lanes of Interstate 15 near the exit connecting to 2100 North at about 9:55 a.m.

The cause of the collision is undermined as an investigation is still underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
As shown in data provided by the Utah Department of Public Safety, Utah automobile collisions are causing an ever-increasing number of fatalities. In 2020, more than 54,000 road accidents took place just in Salt Lake City, leaving more than 17,000 people with some extent of injury. During that same year, nearly 300 people were killed in car accidents throughout the city.
Some of the most common causes of traffic accidents in Utah include:
- Reckless drivers
- Drunk or drugged drivers
- Drowsy drivers
- Speeding drivers
Utah’s drivers can take measures to ensure the safety of themselves and their families by always buckling up, obeying all road signs and traffic, and always keeping an eye on their surroundings. You should get behind the wheel when you are tired and keep your cell phone and other distractions out of sight or out of reach so they do not endanger you, your passengers, or those on the road around you.
No matter how careful and mindful you are, you can neither predict nor prevent events caused by another’s negligence. If you are hurt in a crash that you did not cause, we suggest that you speak with a skilled Utah personal injury attorney as soon as you possibly can.
