SOUTH SALT LAKE — A 43-year-old Salt Lake man was pronounced dead at the scene of a three-car crash that occurred about 10:15 p.m. Friday night at 700 E. 3300 South on South Salt Lake.
Kenneth Brailsford was a passenger in the back seat of a Hyundai sedan that was rear-ended by a Jeep Commander traveling south on 700 East. Four other occupants of the sedan were in critical condition Friday night, said South Salt Lake Police Sgt. Gary Keller.
The sedan was pushed into another vehicle by the impact. In all, nine people were involved in the crash, including six adults and three children. Neither child was injured in the crash, nor was the driver of the Jeep, police said.
Authorities said the 37-year old male driver of the Hyundai was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. One male passenger remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
Police reports suggested the Jeep driver was distracted but the crash remains under investigation, Keller said.
