Davis Co, UT (August 31, 2022) – A driver that pulled off on the lefthand shoulder to fix a flat tire sustained serious injuries when a van driver smashed into their vehicle on Tuesday, August 30th.
Troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol said the collision occurred on Interstate 15 in Davis County when the driver of a passenger vehicle was stopped on the left shoulder due to their vehicle becoming disabled during a tire blowout.
The driver of the stopped vehicle was hospitalized in serious condition. It is unclear if the driver of the van was injured in the impact.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car accidents often leave their victims with severe, debilitating, and even life-threatening injuries. When you are injured in a car accident in Utah, you file a claim against your own Personal Injury Protection policy first.
It is very possible, however, that PIP coverage will simply not be enough to compensate you for the full extent of your damages. When this happens, you can look to the other driver’s liability coverage for financial compensation.
In Utah, you can only file a claim against a negligent driver’s auto insurance policy if your medical costs surpass the $3,000 statutory threshold.
