CAPTION ONLY: A CLOSE CALL

A Salt Lake police officer checks out Mark Klosiewski, 21, center foreground, while other officers investigate an accident that occurred Sunday afternoon at the intersection of 200 East and 300 South. Matthew Quimette, 24, Midvale, right foreground, was driving a pickup south on 200 East when it was struck by a pickup heading east on 300 South. Quimette's truck spun around, crashed into a utility pole, hit the curb and rolled. "I ended up hanging upside down by my seat belt," said Klosiewski, Salt Lake City, a passenger in Quimette's truck. "The roof caved in on us when the truck rolled." Neither of the men nor the unidentified woman, left foreground, driving the other truck was injured in the accident. Quimette was helping Klosiewski move, and the truckload of books and household items were scattered over the roadway. Traffic at the downtown intersection was briefly diverted, but no major problems were reported.
