Holladay Pedestrian Accident Leaves Man with Serious Personal Injuries

posted May 14, 2009 | by

83-year old Cyrus McKell of Holladay, Utah was hit by a car while doing yard work near his home on Wednesday, May 14. McKell was working on a sprinkler system in his condominium complex when at 87-year-old driver jumped the median, went up onto the lawn and hit McKell throwing him several feet, reports KSL news.

Salt Lake County sheriff’s report that the driver suffered some sort of health problem that attributed to the crash.

Mckell taught botany at Utah State and was also the former dean of the Weber State College of Science. He received serious head injuries and remains in extremely critical condition.

From a legal perspective, Cyrus McKell has a claim against the man that hit him for the brain injury and other serious injuries he received. It is likely the other driver knew that he was having health problems at the time he got behind the wheel of his car. He and/or his insurance company need to accept full responsibility for what happened here. Mr. McKell will also want to get his own auto insurance involved to help pay for medical bills and possibly provide additional benefits should the insurance company for the at-fault driver be insufficient to cover the fair value of this case. My best wishes to Mr. McKell and his family as he recovers from his serious injuries.
