Orem DUI Motorcycle Accident Takes Man’s Life

posted September 14, 2012 | by

It happened early this morning, September 14, 2012, that a man, Juan Ernesto Salazar Conce, 31 years old of Orem, lost his life when the motorcycle he was a passenger on was rear-ended by a motorist in a passenger car. According to KSL News, a driver of a Mitsubishi had chosen to drive impaired and appeared to be driving at a high rate of speed on the I-15 through Pleasant Grove when the driver rear-ended a motorcycle with two men on it. The impact caused the motorcyclist to lose control and crash, resulting in the passenger coming off the back and into traffic, where several cars stuck him.

The driver of the motorcycle, Irving Tellez Acevedo, was also injured and is in critical condition at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. The motorist was taken into custody after he apparently failed the police sobriety test and police found prescription pills and evidence of alcohol in his car. He is expected to be charged with DUI and automobile homicide.

I send my condolences to the family and friends of Juan Ernesto for this needless loss and my best wishes to the motorcycle driver for the best recovery possible.

Legally speaking, it sounds as if the impaired motorist is completely responsible for this motorcycle accident occurring. This being the case, the family of Juan Ernesto and the driver of the motorcycle have a claim against the driver of the Mitsubishi, with the family of Juan Ernesto having a wrongful death claim. Claims for injuries must be made within four years of the incident and wrongful death claims must be made within two years.
