Logan, UT (June 15, 2021) – Officials from the Logan Police Department have identified the man who died on Monday, June 14th in a collision between his vehicle and a large dump truck as Adam J. Rounds, a resident of Smithfield.
The accident took place at about 8:40 a.m. near the intersection of 1000 West and 1800 North when Rounds’ sedan attempted to turn south from 1800 North onto 1000 West when a dump truck heading northbound on 1000 West crashed into it, causing Rounds to sustain mortal injuries.
The dump truck driver received injuries classified as non-critical and was treated by paramedics at the scene and then released.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Adam J. Rounds, at this time.
From 1992 to 2002, the number of oversized vehicles involved in deadly accidents has seen a 10% increase caused largely by avoidable circumstances like driver fatigue, dangerous truck operation, unbalanced and oversized cargo, and defective equipment. Accidents involving oversized commercial trucks are also prone to the same causative factors as any other motor vehicle, such as driver fatigue, driving under the influence, driver error, equipment failure, and improper maintenance.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of truck operators, it is essential that they quickly seek legal advice from an oversized vehicle accident attorney in Salt Lake City who has plenty of experience with these kinds of claims.
