Moab Car Accident Claims Lives of Two Men

posted July 1, 2010 | by

Shelby Limas, 36 and Thayn Michael Sumway, 26, both of Moab, Utah, are dead following a single-car accident on July 1, 2010. According to KSL News, both men were in a 1986 Chevy truck driving near a small cliff outside of Moab on state Route 128 around 3 a.m. when the truck left the road and went down into the Colorado River Gorge, landing upside down. Limas was ejected from the truck and Shumway was found under it. The Utah Highway Patrol is unsure who was driving or whether the men were wearing seat belts or not.

I send my deepest condolences to the families of these two men.

As a Utah personal injury attorney, I’m interested in how car accidents happen. From the story, it is unclear as to how this one may have happened. The crash did happen at 3 a.m. This raises an issue as to whether drowsiness played a factor in any of this.

Legally speaking, if one of the men caused the car accident to happen, then the family of the victim would have a legal claim against that other person’s insurance as well as a likely claim against any underinsured policy that may have covered that person.
