South S.L. gets pickup to deal with accidents

South Salt Lake has a new tool to deal with accidents and emergencies during the era of heavy traffic on I-15 - a new four-wheel-drive Ford pickup.

Because of relatively small size, the truck will have an easy time maneuvering in and out of traffic.I-15 reconstruction has eliminated emergency lanes and reduced the width of travel lanes. The conventional response with large fire engines was becoming dangerous and sometimes impossible, said South Salt Lake police Sgt. Beau Babka.

The truck will be packed with medical equipment, rescue tools and fire extinguishers.
