Excessive speeds may have been the cause of a car rollover wreck in Millard County, Utah that took the life of 43-year-old Trina Lowry on Saturday, March 31, 2012. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Trina Lowry was traveling northbound in her Chevrolet Trailblazer when she missed a curve and drifted into the median. The vehicle lost control and rolled into a southbound semi-trailer. Trina lost her life at the scene of the accident. The driver of the semi was left uninjured. Investigators suspect that speed may have been the cause of the accident. There was no report of drugs or alcohol. Trina was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
I offer my sincere condolences to the family of this individual.
It is heartbreaking to hear of an accident like this. There certainly ways to avoid and/or minimize the risk of such accidents. It’s imperative that drivers on Utah roads observe traffic laws, especially when it comes to speed limit signs.
Legally speaking, it may be that the family of Ms. Lowry has no claim following this tragic, single-car wreck. Unless there is evidence of a mechanical defect or perhaps another motorist that cut her off, I suspect that making a legal claim would be difficult.
