Fiery Crash with Semitrailer in Lehi Utah

Posted by George Tait | Mar 19, 2016 | 0 Comments

At about 2:30 am on Tuesday morning in Lehi Utah there was a crash involving a car and a semitrailer. An article in the Daily Herald it appears that the car driven by an unidentified man crashed into the rear of a parked dump truck and then burst into flames. The man in the car was extricated from the burning vehicle by fire and police emergency personnel. Life Flight was immediately called and after the man's airway was established he was evacuated to the University of Utah Burn Trauma Unit. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

As a former nurse and now a personal injury lawyer I have intimate knowledge of the catastrophic injuries this man faces. He will be in critical condition for weeks and maybe months. Hopefully, with the great skill and compassion of the professionals at the burn unit, this man will experience as best a recovery as can be hoped for.

The liability for the crash needs to be determined in a near emergent manner. Pictures need to be obtained and statements taken to preserve the evidence. If the truck was parked in violation of the law the truck driver and his employer might be held responsible for causing the crash.
