MILLCREEK, Utah, June 8, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — One person is dead and at least two others are in critical condition after a vehicle jumped a curb in Millcreek and ran into people at a Starbucks.

The incident happened at about 9:16 a.m. at 4744 S. Highland Drive, said Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera, speaking from the scene.

“We have information that a truck driving on Highland at a high rate of speed went over the curb, and went into Starbucks,” Rivera said. “One person is deceased. The truck driver was just extricated. It doesn’t look like it was intentional.

“The driver is male, and did have two small children, about age 5 and 7, in the truck, and they do have minor injuries.”

According to reports, several of those injured and the deceased person were seated at a Starbucks table outside the building. The Starbucks is located at the Cottonwood Square Mall.

Police on the scene are investigating whether the man driving the truck may have suffered a medical episode that started when he left a drive-thru across the street from Starbucks.
