Press Release

Semi rollover with a gravel spill.

Thursday November 18, 2021

At approximately 10:05 A.M. this morning 11/18/21, a dump truck carrying a load of gravel overturned, spilling its contents. The driver indicated he was having issues with his brakes and attempted a maneuver to avoid traveling off the roadway. Due to a punctured fuel tank as a result of the crash, the Park city Fire Dist HASMAT Team responded to the scene to contain the spill. Traffic has been diverted off Marsac Ave. (SR-224) onto Twisted Branch and ultimately through Brighton Estates, while efforts to clear the wreckage continue. There were no treatable injuries reported at the scene. The Park City Police Department, Utah Highway Patrols, and UDOT have been heavily engaged in efforts to minimize the potential for commercial vehicle crashes on Marsac Ave. during the last few months. These on-going efforts will continue to safeguard our residents more effectively for the future. Park City PD ended up taking the crash.
