UPDATE: Paula Flores Injured in Suspected Drunk Driving Accident in Woods Cross, Utah

WOODS CROSS, UT — A single-vehicle rollover accident left two people in the hospital in Woods Cross, Utah on Monday, July 7th, 2014, according to the news report from The Davis Clipper.

Police have said that they have reason to believe Paula Flores was hurt when the vehicle she was in is believed to have lost control for reasons currently under investigation while driving on the 500 South Frontage Road around 12:30 in the morning Monday.

Scene of the Accident



Both 22-year-old Paula Flores and 21-year-old Tyler Cotter were taken by EMS personnel to Intermountain Medical Center with unspecified injuries.

Authorities have said that they think alcohol and speed may have played a role in the accident, but have not yet released the results of their investigation at the time of writing.

Utah State Police are currently investigating the accident.


There could be a few avenues this accident takes. Depending on the liquor liability laws, there could be a claim against a bar if the driver of the offending vehicle recently left one after being over-served. On the off chance there is no dram shop claim available, there could be a negligence claim against the driver of the vehicle if they are found to have been intoxicated and speeding. Again, the facts rest on a number of variables, but this accident would surely be worth a much closer look than this news article provides.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
