Father and Daughter Killed in Semi Accident


Sadly a father and his young daughter were killed and two other family members seriously injured in a semi truck crash that happened in Riverdale, Utah. In addition, the semi crash happed Sunday afternoon when a vehicle a family was riding in was rear-ended by another vehicle, and then pushed into the truck.

The family’s car was heading north on I-15 by the I-84 junction when it was stopped behind a semi truck. A car that was driving at a high rate of speed then hit the back of the family’s car, and pushed it in the back of the semi. Inside the family car were four people: 30-year-old dad, his 28-year-old wife, two children that were a 5-year-old girl, and a 7-year-old girl.

Tragically the father and the 5-year-old daughter died at the scene. The mother and 7-year-old are currently in critical condition. The family dog died in the horrific semi truck crash as well. Both the driver of the car that struck the family and the semi driver were both unharmed in the accident.
