Salt Lake City, UT (July 18, 2021) – Officers with the Salt Lake City Police Department and Utah Highway Patrol troopers say that multiple people were transported to area medical centers after a crash occurred on State Route 201 at 4000 West late Thursday evening, July 15.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cameron Roden said that a driver was traveling eastbound on SR-201 at approximately 11:00 p.m. when they lost control. The driver reportedly hit the barrier and ended up blocking the middle of the freeway on SR 201 and 4000 West.
Roden said that several vehicles stopped to render assistance, and another car hit two of the stopped vehicles. At least two victims were transported to area hospitals by ground ambulance with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
The driver who initially crashed was issued a citation but has not been identified.
The investigation is ongoing, and further details have not been released.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car wrecks are the leading cause of accidental deaths nationwide. These collisions are also a significant source of serious and catastrophic injuries to more than two million crash victims every year.
When injuries result from auto crashes due to the recklessness of other motorists, victims need legal advice from a reputable car accident attorney in Salt Lake City. Anytime someone is harmed due to another driver’s negligence, they are legally permitted to collect financial remuneration from the liable party in order to reduce the economic hardships brought on by hospital bills, lost wages, property damage, and many other losses.
In any given year, the state of Utah generally sees about 50,000 car accidents. From this total number of incidents, nearly 25,000 cause their victims to experience some form of injury or even death. When victims succumb to their injuries as a result of these accidents, those left behind may be forced to pick up the pieces, all while grieving their loved one’s death.
Unfortunately, victims and their families pay the price after these unfortunate incidents. Whether they’re dealing with exorbitant medical costs that come with their convalescence or are attempting to negotiate with insurance companies, victims and affected families can be put in tough situations, often with frustrating results, as a result of a wreck that’s occurred through no fault of their own.
