It would be fair to say that many people throughout the country are enormously reliant upon their motor vehicles. In fact, we use them every day. While this use of a motor vehicle may have become routine, this does not mean that there are no risks associated with driving. In fact, it is all too common for drivers to become distracted, for one reason or another, which can result in negligence ands a car accident. When a driver drives distracted, they place everyone at risk of substantial injuries. This is why plaintiffs should rely on an experienced car accident lawyer specialist or an expert personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates for help and guidance. We have decades of experience to help guide you through the often complicated litigation process.
An Orem, Utah man died recently after the vehicle he was driving crashed into a flatbed truck during a seven-car crash on Interstate 15 northbound. The Utah Highway Patrol identified the man who died as Dylan Thornton, 35 years-old. Mr. Thornton was a social studies teacher at the Vista Heights Middle School in Saratoga Springs, Utah. One trooper was in the area, conducting a traffic stop, when the accident occurred and witnessed the crash. That officer, Trooper Royce, said this serious accident began as two separate two-car crashes, which led to even more crashes.
The last sequence of events ended with Mr. Thornton’s Mitsubushi crashing into the flatbed truck. It was noted in Trooper Royces’ report that it appeared as if Mr. Thornton’s vehicle attempted to take evasive maneuvers. But in the end, his vehicle slid underneath the flatbed truck. Mr. Thornton was pronounced dead at the scene, and a few other people suffered minor injuries. It is believed that the original crashes were caused by drivers being distracted from the trooper’s traffic stop, leading to them tailgating each other and being unable to stop in time.
