Marriott-Slaterville, UT (July 11, 2021) – The bicyclist who was killed on Thursday, July 8th after being hit by a tractor-trailer in Marriott-Slaterville has finally been identified.
Jana Lee Taylor Wangsgard was recently identified as the bicycle rider who was struck by the tires on a tractor-trailer as it made a righthand turn from 400 North onto State Route 126. Wangsgard entered the intersection on the truck’s right side and was struck by its tires when it started to turn.
She died as a result of her injuries.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Jana Lee Taylor Wangsgard, at this time.
Tractor-trailer accidents that are frequently caused by negligence on the part of the trucking company itself include overloaded or overweight trailers, defective truck parts, inadequate or no maintenance, insufficient driver training, speeding or other illegal driving habits, especially when coupled with bad weather or road conditions, and drivers who are exhausted from being overworked who are more likely to make miscalculations and other errors of judgment.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of those who owe them a duty of care it is vital that they quickly seek legal advice from a truck accident attorney in Salt Lake City who has plenty of experience with these kinds of claims.
When victims are harmed in collisions, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
