OGDEN, UT — One driver is dead and two others were hurt in a major crash in Ogden, Utah on Sunday, June 1st, 2014, according to a report from KUTV.
Police familiar with details of the crash investigation have said that they have reason to believe that Russel Sylvester was killed when the vehicle he was a passenger in crashed into another vehicle for reasons currently unclear to investigators while driving on Harrison Boulevard near the intersection with SR 89.
Scene of the Accident
Russel Sylvester was killed in the crash. Injured in the crash was Vivian Sylvester and Kenneth Hahn, who were taken to a nearby hospital with unspecified injuries.
The investigation is being handled by officials from the Utah State Police.
The fault with this accident is going to depend on the kind of intersection where this took place. If one of the vehicles possibly ran the stop sign or light, they would be more than likely responsible for the crash, but what if there is more going on? If the brakes were applied in the offending vehicle, and failed to engage to stop or slow the car, the manufacturer of the car, or possibly the part that failed could be held accountable. Either way, nobody will be able to say for sure without a clean look at the accident.
