Utah Highway Patrol alerts Utah tractor-trailer accident attorneys- A semi-truck rollover in Garfield County injured four people.
Garfield County, UT—A California woman may need an amputation after her vehicle pulled into the path of a semi-truck. The motor vehicle collision (MVC) happened on Sunday, October 11, 2009 around 5:30 p.m., at the intersection of Route 12 and U.S. 89 near Panguitch, as reported by the Desert News.
According to Utah Highway Patrol troopers, a vehicle driven by Dana George, 55, of California, stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Route 12 and U.S. 89 and proceeded to make a turn south onto U.S. 89. George’s vehicle pulled out into the path of a northbound tractor-trailer, which continued to drive north, rolled over, hit a fence, and slid up a dirt embankment.
The impact of the collision ejected George from her vehicle. George was transported by emergency medical services (EMS) to Garfield Memorial Hospital, and was later airlifted to Salt Lake City trauma center for treatment. George reportedly may need an amputation as a result of the wreck. Two other passengers inside George’s vehicle, both from California, were also transported by EMS teams to Garfield Hospital for treatment of their injuries. The semi-truck driver also sustained injuries in collision, and was rushed to a Garfield hospital by EMS teams. The Utah Highway Patrol is reportedly investigating the motor vehicle collision (MVC).
