West Valley City, UT (January 05, 2022) – Officers and emergency responders were on the scene of a vehicle accident with injuries in West Valley City on Wednesday, January 5th.
The crash happened at about 3:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 215 at the SR-201 junction.
Emergency Medical Technicians were also dispatched to the scene to medically evaluate those involved in the collision and provide any necessary aid and transportation.
Even though injuries were confirmed, no further details about the collision or its victims have been made known.
This accident is under investigation by local law enforcement.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The Utah counties with the largest rates of fatal and injury-causing crashes are Cache County, Salt Lake County, and Utah County. As a whole, the state of Utah witnessed 62,074 auto crashes in 2018, more than 200 of which brought about the loss of roughly 260 lives and resulted in over 25,500 people enduring very serious injuries.
If you have decided to take legal action by filing a claim of personal injury, you have a very specific window of time in which to do so. In Utah, a crash victim is given four years from the day the accident occurred to file their claim. This time limit, known as the statute of limitations, varies from state to state. Once the deadline has passed, any attempt at filing a claim will be denied by the courts.
Time is very limited in these cases, and hiring an experienced car accident attorney is the best way to build your claim, defend your rights, and obtain the financial compensation to which you are entitled.

When injuries result from car crashes due to the recklessness of other motorists, victims need legal advice from a reputable West Valley City car accident lawyer.
