Salt Lake City, UT – Three Injured After RV Crashes into Starbucks on 2100 SouthUtah Legal News
Salt Lake City, UT (April 22, 2019) – A terrible accident took place on Monday, April 22nd that affected both eastbound and westbound traffic on 2100 South. The accident is reported to have occurred at about 2:30 in the afternoon.
Members of the Salt Lake City Fire Department and local police responded to the call of an accident that included a pick-up truck and a motor home that crashed into a Starbucks drive-thru at the intersection of State Street and 2100 South, knocking out power to the main traffic light.
Preliminary reports would seem to indicate that the pick-up truck was driving westbound on 2100 South when it attempted to make a lefthand turn onto State Street. The truck was struck by the motor home, which was headed east on 2100 South. The impact from the collision sent the RV flying into the drive-thru area of a Starbucks located at the same intersection and cut off power to the intersection’s traffic light. The RV stopped just short of actually entering the popular coffee shop and no one inside was injured.
Two people from inside the motor home suffered injuries, one of whom was the driver who had to be extricated from the vehicle. The driver of the pick-up was also injured in the crash. All three victims required emergency medical transport to a nearby hospital. Their conditions are listed as ranging from good to serious. There is no word yet on specifically which victim is in what condition.
Police are still trying to determine which of the two vehicles had the right of way at the time of the accident.
We wish a full and quick recovery to all those who have suffered injuries as the result of this awful accident.
