Salt Lake City, UT (August 13, 2021) – Authorities have released further details after three separate car accidents that occurred on the Salt Flats during the yearly Speed Week sent three drivers to the hospital on Sunday, August 8.
According to the Southern California Timing Association, a sanctioning body that maintains rules and records, one man’s vehicle went out of control around 11:00 a.m. The 81-year-old was transported by ambulance to a Life Flight and then flown to University Hospital in Salt Lake City for serious injuries.
Just a couple of hours later, around 1:30 p.m., a 77-year-old man lost control of his motorcycle and crashed. He was also airlifted to University Hospital.
Shortly thereafter, a 73-year-old man lost control of his vehicle around 4:00 p.m. Bureau of Land Management officials say he was also taken by ambulance to an awaiting medical helicopter, which then airlifted him to a Salt Lake-area hospital. He was in critical condition upon arrival.
No information has been released regarding their current conditions, and SCTA authorities said the incidents are under investigation.
