The Salt Lake Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team was on scene along with SLCPD crime lab technicians, collecting evidence and trying to piece together what led up to each crash.
“This is a really good reminder to all of us, whenever we get in the car, to make sure we keep those distractions away from us, that we can make sure that we’re looking and paying attention while driving so that something like this doesn’t happen to us,” Peterson said.
Police have asked drivers to avoid the area and traffic will be impacted for several hours. All drivers remained on scene and were cooperating with the investigation.
