Randolph, UT (July 13, 2021) – Two people were killed and two more were transported with serious injuries following a head-on collision on Saturday, July 10th.
Reports show that, at about 12:55 p.m., a 2018 Toyota RAV4 was driving northbound on State Route 16 just outside of Randolph when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, it swerved into oncoming traffic and crashed head-first into a 2013 Ford Expedition.
The driver and passenger in the Toyota both died on the scene.
The driver of the Expedition was taken by paramedics to a local while the passenger was taken by medical helicopter. Both sustained significant injuries during the impact.
The roadway was closed for about four hours for police investigation.
No names have been released.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
A head-on car crash, also identified as a wrong-way car crash, is a phrase that acknowledges an impact between the front-ends of two motor vehicles traveling in opposite directions. This sort of vehicle crash has the highest odds of leaving its victims facing severe or even mortal injuries. The measure of force that is usually created during this type of accident is great and the primary reason that head-on crashes made up about 30% of all fatal traffic crashes in 2017.
Although no amount of financial compensation can ever make things okay after the loss of someone you love due to the careless or reckless behavior of another driver, families who have the economic means to afford reliable medical care, lost wages, burial and funeral costs, and other unexpected expenses they will come across will find it much easier to deal with their loss.
