Layton, UT – Multi-Vehicle Injury Accident Closes Down Part of U.S. Highway 89Utah Legal News
Layton, UT (April 07, 2019) – A major accident occurred in both the north and southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 89 in Davis County on Sunday, April 7th. The crash is reported to have happened a little before 1:00 in the afternoon.
The Layton Fire Department along with the local police were called to the scene of an accident that involved a head-on collision between a hatchback and a pickup truck. The incident took place on U.S. Highway 89 in the vicinity of 100 North.
A statement from the Layton Fire Department indicated that a vehicle traveling in the northbound lane suddenly drifted into the southbound flow of traffic for a reason that has not yet been determined. The errant vehicle collided head-on with a southbound car and then promptly caught fire.
Four adults received emergency transport to a nearby hospital where they received medical treatment for their injuries, some of which were severe but all were assessed as non-life threatening.
The police still appear to be unclear on exactly who was in which vehicle at the time of the accident and the identities of those involved have yet to be released.
Our thoughts are with the people who were injured in this accident. We hope for a full recovery from the injuries sustained.
