Two Young Children Killed in an Accident on S.R. 201

A multiple-vehicle accident on State Road 201 near 3400 West killed two children Saturday, June 25th around 4:00 pm. A vehicle traveling down SR 201 experienced a mechanical failure according to the Deseret News article and crashed into the concrete barrier. Traffic quickly began to slow down to accommodate the damaged vehicle. That’s when a Volkswagen Jetta changed lanes and a Toyota Tacoma hit it from behind. The two victims, both little girls, were only 1 and 2 years of age. They were transported to the hospital by medical helicopter where they later died. The accident is currently being reviewed by the Office of the District Attorney to see if criminal charges are warranted.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the parents of the two young children who lost their lives in this tragic and preventable accident.
