Silver Summit, UT (May 05, 2022) – Emergency response teams and highway patrol officers reported to the scene of a vehicle accident involving an overturned tractor-trailer on Interstate 80 on Thursday, May 5th.
The crash took place at about 5:15 p.m. in the westbound lanes of the interstate near milepost 148 just outside of Silver Summit.
Although very few details have been released, officials confirmed that a medical helicopter was dispatched to transport at least one victim in serious condition.
No names or current medical conditions have been made known at this time.
No additional details are available.
This accident is under investigation by local law enforcement.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Most truck accident victims will face a long recovery. This may include strict physical therapy and repeated medical treatments, meaning their medical costs are continuously growing in addition to their associated losses like missed wages from being unable to work.
Understandably, many truck accident victims are frightened and accept the first settlement offered without giving any consideration to the trajectory of other anticipated expenses and without even learning the full scope of their injuries forcing them to come out of pocket for everything else.
Legal representation by a respected Utah truck accident lawyer who knows how to calculate what expenses you might face in the future is your best shot at collecting the compensation you deserve.
If you were injured in an accident caused by the negligence of a truck operator, it is vital that you contact a knowledgeable Utah truck accident attorney as soon as possible at (801) 350-3506 to schedule a free case review.
