West Jordan Car Accident Claims Life

posted December 28, 2011 | by

A car accident today, December 28, 2011, claimed the life of a 88-year old man in West Jordan, Utah. According to KSL News, the West Jordan car wreck happened when the older driver driving a white sedan attempted to make a left-hand turn from 9000 South onto 1300 West, directly in front of an approaching south-bound motorist at 5:40 a.m. A collision subsequently resulted, claiming the life of the elderly man. The driver of the other car, a 19 year-old female, received minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital.

I offer my deep condolences to the family of this car accident victim. I actually passed this scene on the way to my West Jordan office this morning and saw the badly-damaged white sedan and the surveyor’s camera set up in the middle of the intersection. It looked like a serious crash and I was saddened to learn the crash was fatal.

Unfortunately, many motorists and passengers get injured when they mis-time making their left-hand turns. I think the recent move to a flashing yellow arrow is helping to reduce the number of incidents. Still, left-hand-turning drivers need to be vigilant and actually have a duty under Utah law to yield to traffic and others before making their turn, even if their light is turning to red.
