West Valley Man Dead Following Car Accident

posted May 10, 2010 | by

Ernesto Melchor, 41 years old of West Valley City, Utah, is dead following a car accident Sunday, May 9, 2010. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, this Utah fatal accident happened just before 11 p.m. According to reports, Melchor was headed north on I-215 at the time, lost control as he attempted to turn on to eastbound state Route 201. Melchor’s car rolled multiple times and he was ejected from the vehicle, flew 150 feet, actually landing in the eastbound lanes of State Road 201. Sadly, due to his not wearing his seat belt, the force of the collision, or both, Mr. Melchor was dead at the scene. Officers say they believe speed and impaired driving contributed to this fatal crash.

I send my sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Mechor who no doubt are suffering following this fatal crash.

As a Utah personal injury lawyer, who has seen too many injuries from unrestrained drivers, I send a reminder to all those who read this to please wear your seat belt and make sure your passengers wear their seat belt while your vehicle is in motion. Please also follow the speed limit, especially on curved on ramps.
