According to reports by the Greenfield Reporter of Greenfield, Indiana, and 2News in Salt Lake, a 27-year-old female died in a four-car crash at 5400 South and 2700 West on June 30th. Both reports state that a 35-year-old man, driving a silver Hyundai, veered off 5400 South and crashed into another car, starting the chain-reaction crash. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. The female victim was in one the last cars hit in the accident and died on scene due to her injuries.
Traffic was blocked at 5400 South in both directions and 2700 West was only opened in the southbound lane. This caused traffic to back up for hours.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of the victim in this accident. Not only could her death have been prevented if this man had not been driving erratically, but also if he had not been under the influence of alcohol.
