SALT LAKE CITY — One person was killed and eight others injured when a multipassenger van collided with another vehicle and rolled Tuesday in Salt Lake City.
The van was carrying 11 people — most of them construction workers — when it crashed at the intersection of Wright Brothers Drive and Amelia Earhart Drive, west of the Salt Lake City International Airport, about 6:15 a.m., said Salt Lake Police Sgt. Keith Horrocks.
Eric Salazar, 44, was killed in the crash, according to police. Salt Lake police said Tuesday afternoon that investigators anticipated a “lengthy investigation” before determining what caused the crash.
Eight others were transported to local hospitals with injuries not considered to be life-threatening, Horrocks said. The driver of the other vehicle was treated at the scene by paramedics.
“This was a very difficult accident scene that impacted several people,” police said in a prepared statement.
