South Salt Lake, UT (March 10, 2021) – A multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 15 in South Salt Lake took place on Tuesday, March 9th.
The accident occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 in the area of 3300 South and resulted in the closing of three right lanes and the northbound exit ramp for Interstate 15.
An official with the Utah Highway Patrol said that a passenger car crashed into the back of a pick-up truck. A van then collided with the back of the passenger car, causing a tractor-trailer to rear-end the van.
During the impact, a diesel fuel tank was cracked and spilled nearly 100 gallons of fuel along 75-yards of the interstate.
Sources stated that the collision caused some minor injuries, and one person required hospitalization.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Although there are many different styles of car accidents that can cause injuries to the people involved, one thing that most of them have in common is that the injuries sustained by many crash victims will have a serious negative impact on their lives.
Your accident-related injuries could require medical testing that is not widely available or treatments that, while necessary, are prohibitively expensive. Some of the injuries that occur most frequently in car crash victims are soft tissue injuries like whiplash, injuries to the shoulders, neck, and head, deep lacerations, multiple broken bones, and spinal cord injuries. For many victims, the pain they experience on a daily basis is so severe that they are not able to work, hastening the impending financial burden.
When victims are injured in accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers, it is crucial that they seek legal guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable car accident attorney in Salt Lake City as soon as possible. When victims are harmed in collisions, through no fault of their own, they are often able to obtain compensation from wrongdoers to alleviate the financial costs they face for medical treatment, lost wages, property repairs, and a variety of other economic and non-economic damages.
