Tooele, UT (May 08, 2021) – Two adults and a 5-year-old child are in the hospital following a head-on collision on State Route 112 on Saturday, May 8th in Tooele.
A pick-up truck driven by a 20-year-old male driver was driving eastbound along S.R. 112 between 600 West and 500 West at about 4:00 p.m. when it collided head-on with a westbound car driven by a 33-year-old man with a 5-year-old passenger.
Officers are still trying to figure out which car was out of their lane.
The 33-year-old driver sustained the most serious injuries and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. He is expected to recover,
The 20-year-old man and 5-year-old passenger sustained non-critical injuries and were taken by ambulance to an area hospital.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
After being involved in a car accident, it is necessary for injured victims to secure legal representation as quickly as possible. To properly determine the cause of the accident and assign liability, it is important that the scene is investigated and witnesses are debriefed as soon as possible before people forget, memories shift, crucial evidence is destroyed or lost, and insurance carriers start working against you.
Legal advocation from a reputable car accident attorney is critical in stopping the insurance company from taking advantage of you in your hour of need. It is not uncommon for their adjusters to force or trick vulnerable victims into agreeing to a settlement that is far less than they deserve in order to protect their bottom line, making you a victim for the second time.
