WEST JORDAN -- A crash in West Jordan ended with a scooter under a truck.
Around 8 a.m. Wednesday at 8250 S. Jaguar Drive, the driver of a truck failed to yield to a woman on a scooter. The woman's brakes locked up, and she slid under the truck.
Police say she is lucky to be alive.
"This is a situation where the scooter probably actually saved her life because it stopped the truck from going over top of her -- stopped the wheels," said Capt. Dan Gallagher with the West Jordan Police Department.
The woman was flown to the hospital as a precaution. She is expected to be OK.
The driver of the truck was cited.
