South Salt Lake, UT (May 23, 2021) – One woman was taken to an area hospital in very serious condition on Sunday, May 22nd after her car was struck by a driver running a red light.
The accident took place at about 6:15 p.m. in the area of 2700 South and 105 West.
The victim’s condition has since been upgraded to stable, with significant but non-life-threatening injuries.
Two other people also sustained non-critical injuries during the crash.
The driver who allegedly ran the red light was an unlicensed juvenile. No other information was available as the incident is still under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
A large-scale study overseen by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that over 2,307,000 vehicle crashes took place at intersections in 2017 throughout the United States. These kinds of car accidents account for 40% of all collisions nationwide. This shows that nearly half of America’s accidents happen in intersections.
