Sunset, UT (November 29, 2021) – Two people were killed when two SUVs collided head-on on Sunday, November 28th.
Reports show that at about 8:00 p.m., a southbound Honda Pilot driven by a 33-year-old man from Roy veered into the northbound lanes of Main Street, where it collided with a Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 46-year-old woman from Clearfield.
The woman died at the scene. The man died either while he was being airlifted to the hospital or shortly thereafter.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
In 2015, 276 people died in Utah car accidents; the highest fatality rate in the state in the last decade. According to a spokesperson for the Utah Highway Patrol, about 93% of those fatalities were the result of human error.
While many of these fatal accidents are associated with an overall rise in travel, most of the state’s fatal crashes happen because drivers refuse to heed the state’s warnings about safe driving. Offenses ranging from not being properly buckled up while the vehicle is in motion to driving while intoxicated, Utah residents seem utterly resolved to throw caution and the safety of others to the wind.
While driving regulations and laws in every state exist for the sole purpose of preventing car accidents and the loss of life, it is obvious that not enough is being done. Especially when you consider that Utah’s rate of fatal car accidents has increased by more than 25% since its all-time low in 2012.
When a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence causes harm to other people, the injured victims need to seek legal guidance from a car accident attorney in Sunset. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
