Huntsville, UT (October 25, 2021) – Officials have released the name of the driver who died in a fatal car accident near Pineview Reservoir on Sunday, October 24th.
The victim has been identified as 36-year-old Eliacim J. Zamora Perez, a resident of Riverdale.
Troopers were dispatched to the scene on State Route 39 at about 4:40 p.m. Upon their arrival, they found that an eastbound Audi S3 passenger car had collided with a westbound Dodge 3500 pickup truck.
Zamora Perez, the driver of the Audi, died at the scene. A nine-year-old passenger in the back seat and an adult passenger in the front seat both sustained critical injuries during the impact.
According to police, the crash happened when the Audi suddenly crossed the double yellow line and struck the pick-up head-on.
The truck left the roadway and overturned onto its roof. The truck driver sustained injuries to his lower extremities and was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital. The driver’s condition was not provided.
Why the Audi swerved into oncoming traffic remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Eliacim J. Zamora Perez, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
In Utah, personal injury victims are given four years from the day of their accident to file a claim of personal injury. If you fail to file your case before the statute of limitations expires, courts could refuse to even hear your case.
During a personal injury case, you will be asked if you want to take a settlement or if you’d prefer to go to trial and the answer lies in the details of your case. As an unwritten rule, most cases do not go to trial, and the majority of personal injury suits are settled during one of the pre-trial phases.
While you are certainly not obliged to have legal representation in order to pursue financial compensation for an accident, hiring an attorney has many advantages and will give you a greater chance of acquiring the damages you need to cover your accident-related costs.
Having a trial-tested personal injury attorney in your corner can also be reassuring because you will receive professional legal advice which will mitigate any possible mistakes that could keep you from collecting the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.
