Car crashes into semitruck on I-80
Both the man and the woman were extricated from the vehicle and transported by ground ambulance to the University of Utah Hospital. They were traveling westbound on I-80 around 8:46 a.m. when the man driving lost control and the car began to slide sideways, which caused it to veer in the path of the semitruck and resulted in the semi T-boning the car. Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jacob Cox said that the roads were slick with snow and slush, and the driver was traveling too fast for the winter conditions. “UHP continues to ask drivers to please slow down when the roads are wet, slushy, or snowy,” Cox said. “The posted speed limits are for clear, dry days. In winter conditions, it may be best to travel 20 to 30 mph or more under the posted speed limit.” Cox also said that the left and center lane would be closed for crash investigation and diagramming. The semi was carrying over 10,000 pounds of U.S. mail.

Fort Myers police officials say three vehicles were involved in the crash on Winkler Avenue and US-41 near Edison Mall. One person was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. “It also looked like the lady was okay, even thought the ambulance came. It’s just crazy because it’s rush hour traffic. I’m sure everybody is going to be a little late getting home,” said witness Jeremy Hinton. Witnesses say the crash sent water shooting up more than 20 feet into the air. Fortunately, a lot of the water drained into a nearby canal. One lane of southbound US-41 has been closed due to the water.
