(KSL News) A four-car crash shut part of northbound Interstate 15 in Sandy for about 45 minutes today.
The Department of Public Safety said in a news release that the wreck at approximately 8500 South involved two pickup trucks and two other passenger vehicles.
It said just before noon, a woman was driving northbound in a silver car at about 75 miles per hour. She swerved to avoid a vehicle that had just changed lanes, presumably without noticing her car or correctly judging the speed. The woman overcorrected, her car bounced off a concrete barrier, traveled across all the northbound lanes and crashed into another vehicle. It, in turn, collided with two other vehicles.
The woman was flown to University of Utah Medical Center in critical condition. No one else was seriously injured. Occupants in all four vehicles were wearing seat belts.
