Park City, UT (July 14, 2021) – Further details have been released after a serious car accident resulted in fatalities and injuries on Sunday afternoon, July 4.
Per reports from authorities, the incident occurred on Utah State Route 40 at the roadway’s intersection with Strawberry River Road.
Troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol said that a Toyota Highlander was trying to make a left-hand turn onto westbound SR 40 but failed to yield to a Nissan van that was traveling eastbound. The driver of the Nissan hit the Highlander, and the force of the impact pushed both vehicles from the roadway.
Three of the four adults involved in the accident had to be extricated from their respective vehicles. Additionally, UHP troopers said there were several juveniles in the Nissan that received minor bumps and bruises but were evaluated by paramedics at the scene as a precaution.
Three of the injured adults were taken to an area medical center by helicopter, one of them a critically injured woman who has since been pronounced dead.
At this time, officers’ investigations surrounding the accident are still ongoing, and identifying information about the victims involved has not been released.
