North Salt Lake, UT (September 28, 2022) – A multi-vehicle crash that is being at least partially blamed on road debris resulted in injuries on Wednesday, September 28th in North Salt Lake. 

The collision occurred at about 10:45 a.m. on the southbound side of Interstate 15 very close to the Center Street exit and involved four pickup trucks. 

Emergency response teams and highway patrols closed off the immediate area as they conducted an investigation and rendered aid and transportation to the injured patients. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Crashes Caused by Road Debris in Utah

Every year, hundreds of people are injured in collisions caused by debris in the roadway. When Utah residents get behind the wheel, they do so believing that the streets and highways they are about to drive on were not only designed but also maintained with their safety in mind. 

Establishing liability for a traffic accident caused by unsafe conditions on state or local roadways can be difficult. Hazardous road conditions can also include obstructed or improper signage, inadequate lighting, poor road construction, unsafe speed limits, malfunctioning stoplights, potholes, uneven asphalt, and more.

Some additional parties that could potentially be at fault include:

  • If roadways with poor upkeep, like one with a major pothole or a damaged or missing guardrail that has gone unrepaired, resulted in your accident, a government entity could be to blame.
  • Truck companies, owners, operators, or others involved in the trucking industry could be held accountable for incompetently fastened cargo, overcrowded trailers, incorrectly secured trailers, and tire blow-outs.
  • In the event that an insufficiently maintained vehicle or inadequately secured item, such as a mattress, ladder, paint buckets, work tools, or other construction-related or household items caused your accident, the driver of that vehicle could be held responsible. 

If you sustained an injury caused by another person or entity’s negligent behavior, contact a Utah personal injury lawyer at Jardine Law Offices at (801) 350-3506 to schedule a no-obligation case assessment to see how we can help you.

Depending on the cause of the accident, a driver, town, county, utility company, or construction company may be responsible for your injuries. When these entities fail to develop and upkeep roadways and their surrounding areas in a safe manner, dangerous accidents can happen.
