SUV accident attorneys alert- A three-vehicle crash injured four people in Utah.

Salt Lake City, UT—A Tuesday morning, March 9, 2010 three-vehicle collision left four people injured in Riverton. The motor vehicle collision (MVC) occurred around 7:20 a.m., near 12600 South and 2700 West, as reported by the Salt Lake Tribune.

The Unified Police Department reported an eastbound Suburban was apparently trying to make a turn north on 12600 South, when the SUV slammed into a westbound Jeep, which caused the Suburban to slam into another car that was stopped at the red traffic light. A 16-year-old girl, who either fell or was ejected from the passenger side of the Suburban, was flown to Intermountain Medical Center with severe internal injuries. She is still currently listed in critical condition at this time. Three occupants of the Jeep also suffered injuries, and were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment. It is unknown if the driver of the vehicle stopped at the red light was injured in the collision. Police officials are still withholding the identities of the victims pending a full investigation. No citations have been issued in connection with the crash as of yet. It has not been determined who was at fault for the multiple vehicle accident.
