Salt Lake City, UT (September 18, 2021) – Two people were hospitalized after their car left the roadway and fell into a canyon on Wednesday, September 15th.
Police responded at about 10:00 p.m. to reports of a car going over the edge of a cliff from 11th Avenue in The Avenues neighborhood.
Sources said that a white Tesla was driving on 11th Avenue in the direction of the B Street turn.
For reasons still under investigation, the car did not successfully make the turn and crashed through the barrier, falling down into Memory Grove.
A man in his mid-30s and a woman, the only occupants of the vehicle, were transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
Police confirmed the male driver was thrown from the car. The female passenger required extrication.
No identities have been released pending family notification.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Whenever a Utah traffic accident results in injuries to a passenger, they might be confused about how to go about getting help and how to solicit financial compensation for their injuries.
If your car accident was the result of another driver’s negligence or misconduct, then you, as the injured victim, are entitled to bring a claim against the at-fault driver for every injury, loss, and damage you have suffered.
According to Utah driving law, a passenger cannot be held accountable for the negligent actions that led to the accident. This means that passengers who are injured in car accidents are typically eligible to pursue damages from the at-fault driver. It is essential, however, that they hire an attorney who knows the most efficient ways to successfully entreat all relevant and likely avenues of monetary recovery.
When injuries happen in a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence, victims need to seek legal counsel from a car accident attorney in Salt Lake City. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
