Summit Co, UT (July 03, 2021) – The Utah Highway Patrol was dispatched to the site of a three-vehicle crash on Friday, July 2nd at the intersection of Bear Cub Drive and State Route 224 in Summit County.
An official with the department said the accident took place at about 6:20 p.m. when northbound traffic came to a stop, and a northbound car swerved to avoid a collision and went into the oncoming lane, where it collided head-first with a Ford pick-up truck. An SUV behind the Ford also was struck.
Four people were transported to the hospital, two as a precaution, and two with minor to serious injuries that are not life-threatening.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car accidents are the number one cause of critical injuries and accidental deaths in the state of Utah. The most common factors associated with these fatal crashes are drivers who failed to stay in their proper lane (35%), drivers and passengers who are not buckled up (34%), and speeding (42%).
