SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 16, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A man is in critical condition after being pinned in his semi following a crash in Salt Lake City Monday morning.
Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Nick Street told Gephardt Daily the semi lost its brakes coming down Parleys Canyon and the driver of that semi crashed into another semi coming down.
The semi that lost its brakes then continued onto Parleys Way, striking several objects before crashing in the area of 2100 S. 2300 East. The semi plowed into a sculpture of Parley P. Pratt, an early leader of the Latter Day Saint movement, as it came to a stop.
The driver was trapped in his truck but was able to self-extricate with the help of firefighters.
The driver was transported to an area hospital in critical condition, with injuries that are not life-threatening.
No one else was injured in the crash.
