Fatal Accident in Kearns with Parked Semi

posted February 2, 2012 | by

A 31-year-old Kearns man was fatally injured February 1, 2012. According to the The Salt Lake Tribune, police say that a Honda Accord was seen swerving erratically before it ended up crashing into a parked semi. Investigating officials claim that alcohol, drugs, and excessive speeds were issues in the incident. It is speculated that drowsy or distracted driving may have been the cause of the accident, but it is not certain. The family has not been notified of the accident so the victim’s identity is not being released at this moment.

I send my condolences to the family and friends of this man for their loss.

As a Salt Lake City personal injury attorney, I can’t help but wonder what role a parked semi played in causing this accident to occur. Was its parking lights on? Was it parked too close to the road? Why was the semi there in the first place? Although there is no excuse for erratic driving, the semi being where it was at may have contributed to this crash happening. The family of the deceased may wish to speak with a Utah wrongful death attorney to see what options may be available here.
