Injury/property damage crash involving a Jeep liberty and dump truck in Kamas

Tuesday November 20, 2018

On November 20, 2018 at 4:27pm a blue 2004 Jeep Liberty was traveling westbound on 100 South in Kamas, Utah. As the female driver of the Jeep approached the intersection of 100 South and State Road 32, the driver failed to stop for a stop sign at that intersection. The female driver of the jeep proceeded into the intersection where a white 2003 Kenworth dump truck was traveling southbound on SR-32. The driver of the dump truck did not have a traffic control device and was traveling at an estimated speed of 30 miles per hour. The dump truck impacted the passenger side of the Jeep and began to push it off of the right shoulder. The male dump truck driver admitted he was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown onto the floor of the truck. As a result, the truck driver was not able to stop the truck and ran into the north wall of a laundromat at 150 South Main. Both the male driver of the dump truck and the female driver of the Jeep were transported by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. No one was in the laundromat at the time of the accident. Impairment is not suspected as a contributing factor to the accident.
