Reports show that an afternoon crash caused moderate delays in the area of eastbound 11400 South and 700 East. Several lanes at the intersection were blocked, resulting in traffic delays in the area.
EMS rendered aid to victims on-site before transporting those in need of further care to area hospitals.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
In 2018, Utah witnessed 58 fatal intersection accidents, which accounted for 21.2% of its car accident-related deaths, reflecting a 6.5% reduction when compared to 2016.
Even in the absence of design flaws, such as obscured street signage or potholes, intersections present unique hazards for drivers in Utah. There are often several drivers, bicycle riders, and/or pedestrians traveling at different speeds in different directions, and some intersections have up to six lanes all coming together. Even at slow speeds, intersection accidents are capable of causing serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.
