Holladay, UT (September 05, 2021) – A man in his 50s sustained critical injuries on Sunday, September 5th when the moped he was riding was struck by a Subaru at an intersection in Salt Lake County.
An official from the Unified Police Department said that, at about 9:30 a.m., the moped rider was traveling westbound on Murray Holladay Road when he collided with a Subaru traveling northbound on Highland Drive.
Eyewitnesses told investigators that the Subaru ran a red light which caused the moped to crash into its side.
This accident is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car accidents happen on Utah streets and highways every day. In 2018, over 62,000 collisions took place statewide, claiming the lives of 260 victims and causing injury to 25,645 more.
These figures emphasize just how unsafe driving can be. The injuries you sustain, whether minor or critical, could permanently cost you your ability to do many of the things you take for granted, like your ability to make a living, your good health, and your capacity to enjoy life.
The economic difficulty created by your hospital bills, treatment expenses, lost income, and more, can quickly become unmanageable and overwhelming, making it imperative that you speak with a personal injury attorney shortly after your accident if you plan on seeking financial compensation.
When people are injured in car accidents by the disregard of other drivers, those victims need reliable legal guidance from a reputable car accident attorney in Holladay.
