SLCPD Investigating Rollover Crash Involving Excessive Speed, Extensive Damage

SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a high-speed crash that happened after a 30-year-old man lost control of his SUV.

After losing control of the SUV, the driver crashed into two parked cars and rolled the SUV. The SUV finally landed next to a home in the East Liberty Park Neighborhood with the driver trapped inside.

This investigation started at 11:08 p.m. on Thursday, November 30, 2023, when SLC911 got a call about a crash near 1500 South 800 East.

After being rescued from the car by the Salt Lake City Fire Department, paramedics took the man to the hospital, where he remains, with non-life-threatening injuries.

The preliminary investigation shows the man was driving northbound on 800 East at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his SUV and crashed.

The total damage amount is still being calculated.

Charges will be screened with the Office of the Salt Lake City Prosecutor.

The Salt Lake City Police Department is reminding community members of the following safe driving practices:

·       Obey the speed limit.

·       Wear your seatbelt.

·       Eliminate all distractions.
