TAYLORSVILLE — A vehicle crash at 2700 West and 6200 South Wednesday left one adult and one child in critical condition and another child seriously injured, police say.
Police received the first report of the accident at 12:18 p.m., Unified Police Sgt. Melody Gray said. Witnesses told police an SUV ran a red light and crashed into a white car that was turning left, from westbound to southbound, Gray said.
She said there were seven people in the SUV, and the crash left one adult in critical condition, one child in critical condition, and one child in serious condition. Two other child passengers were not treated and released on scene to family members, she said, and two other children were uninjured.
The children's ages ranged from about 2 or 3 years old to 15 years old, Gray said. She added that police don’t yet know the relationship between the adult and all the children in the SUV.
The driver of the white car was not injured, Gray said.
She said police don’t suspect drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash and the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Gray advised the public to make sure children are properly restrained in cars and added police don’t know if the children in the SUV were properly restrained or not.
