SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Dec. 8, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – A rollover accident closed the right lane of Foothill Drive at 2200 South Tuesday afternoon.
Lt. Mike Ross from Salt Lake City Police Department said a vehicle was heading north when the driver lost consciousness because of a medical condition. The driver slumped over the wheel, causing the car to hit the curb, then flip over several times. The driver was transported to University Hospital in serious condition.
“It could have been a lot worse,” said Lt. Ross. “His wife was also in the car, and she was injured but is going to be OK. She tried to stop the vehicle but when he slumped over the wheel, he hit the curb.”
The right lane is likely to be closed until around 2:30 p.m.
