Car Crash in Sugarhouse

By on Nov 1, 2018 in blog, Car Accidents, Personal Injury |

One of my clients was injured in a car crash near Sugarhouse and Millcreek, Utah. The car accident involved several vehicles and my client was injured. It seems that the driver of the car who caused the crash was distracted. Unfortunately, that seems to be occurring more and more frequently, despite the efforts of the government to stop distracted driving. We have all seen the billboards and messages on the freeway system in Utah and through Salt Lake County warning drivers of distracted driving with clever messages, however, apparently that is not enough, as this car crash in Sugarhouse would not have happened.

In fact, just yesterday I was working on a separate case where the driver was distracted and hit my client’s car from behind with his truck in a violent crash. That driver claimed he was actually looking at a third driver who was texting, so even though he wasn’t texting himself, he was driving distracted.

We all need to remember to put down or away any distractions, especially cell phones. If you need to call someone or text someone, pull over. It will only take a minute to stop and then you can communicate safely. Otherwise, you can cause a car crash, like the one in Sugarhouse and seriously injury someone or even yourself. Is it really worth the extra minute to risk your life or someone else’s life? No, it is not!

Let’s make this car crash in Sugarhouse the last one of it’s type.
