Vernal Car Accident Injures Three Persons

Highway 40 was shut down for over 30 minutes on August 31, 2012, when a 24-year-old man from Roosevelt driving a Chevy pickup drove into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into a Dodge pickup truck carrying a 28-year-old man from Colorado and a 32-year-old woman from South Carolina. According to the Deseret News, the crash caused the Chevy to roll onto its roof and sent the Dodge off the road. All three persons involved are said to be injured and were taken to Ashley Regional Medical Center for treatment.

I send my best wishes for a quick recovery to all those involved in this crash.

Legally speaking, motorists are required to keep their vehicles under control and not drive head-on into oncoming traffic. Based on the report, it sounds like the driver of the Chevy truck was primarily responsible for this crash happening and would be liable for injury and property damages claims that may be made against him.

Nephi Plane Crash Takes Two Lives

A plane crash in Nephi, Utah, on August 30, 2012, has taken two victims: Robert Marion Lamb, 45 of Woodland Hills, Utah and Peter John Morweic, 58 of Ontario, Canada. According to KSL News, the small, singe-engine plane went down shortly after take-off near state Route 132 and north of the Nephi Municipal Airport.

According to the report, Morwiec had just purchased the plane and was planning to fly it back to Ontario. The two were up in the air with Lamb giving him post-sale instructions for the Alarus CH2000 airplane when by accounts, the plane got caught in very windy and stormy weather and crashed. The FAA is currently investigating the crash.

I send my condolences to the friends and families of those affected by this tragic crash.
