Soldier Summit, UT (May 21, 2021) – An 18-year-old woman sustained serious injuries following a head-on accident on Friday, May 21st in Soldier Summit.
The accident occurred at about 1:50 p.m. in the westbound lanes of State Highway 6 when a sedan drifted into oncoming traffic and crashed head-first into a full-sized van.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, the woman was then transported by EMS to a local hospital. Her injuries are serious, but non-life-threatening.
The area was closed off for about two hours while officers investigated the cause of the accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
A head-on crash, also called a wrong-way crash, is a phrase referring to contact between the fronts of two automobiles heading in opposite directions. This style of car accident has the greatest likelihood of causing its victims to endure serious or deadly injuries. The sheer force that is usually created by this kind of impact is immense and is the reason these collisions account for nearly 30% of all crash fatalities in 2017.
When people sustain injuries in car accidents due to the carelessness of other drivers, they must get legal advice from an experienced car accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as they can.
