West Valley City Car Accident: As reported by various news outlets, a 19-year old woman tragically passed away in a West Valley City car accident on December 1st. As reported by, “Police said 19-year-old Holly Nickle was traveling southbound in a passenger car on SR-111 when she ran a red light near 5400 South. The passenger car Nickle was driving collided with a pickup truck, leading them to drive off the roadway. When police and the West Valley City Fire Department arrived to the scene Nickle was trapped inside the vehicle. LifeFlight also arrived to the scene, but by the time it landed police say Nickle had died from fatal injuries.”

West Valley City Car Accident:

It is always difficult to hear news about fatal car accidents. Condolences to Holly’s family.

Although not related to the above West Valley City car accident, this is a good time to remind everyone driving out there to be careful, especially now that winter is here. Texting and driving should never been done. It takes just a few seconds more to pull over into a parking lot and off the road if a text message is urgent. No text message is worth risking your life. I have seen many car accidents in West Valley City, Magna, West Jordan, and Salt Lake City caused by distracted driving or texting. Just don’t do it. Also, slow down in snowy conditions. It is better to arrive a few minutes later than not at all. Do not drive up to the limit of control on snowy roads. You should be able to stop your vehicle, if necessary. If no cars are around you and it can be safely done, check your brakes on a snowy road to see how much stopping time you need.

Let’s all drive safer this holiday season. I hope there isn’t even one West Valley City car accident or an accident in Magna, West Jordan, and Salt Lake City.
