1 critically injured, 1 in stable condition after dump truck and semitruck collide in West Jordan

WEST JORDAN — A 41-year-old man is in critical condition and an approximately 45-year-old man is in stable condition after a crash at 3:38 p.m. at Mountain View and 7800 South on Wednesday, police said.

According to West Jordan detective Scott List, a dump truck full of dirt pulling a pup trailer was traveling south on Mountain View Corridor when it was unable to stop and collided with a roll-off dumpster semitruck that was traveling eastbound. The dump truck ended up rolling on its side, List said. He also said that a Suburban was also involved in the accident, but didn’t specify how.

The 41-year-old driver of the semitruck was transported to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition. The driver of the Suburban, a man approximately 45 years old, was transported to Jordan Valley Hospital in stable condition.

List said that eastbound traffic in the area was completely shut down, but southbound and westbound remained open. He also noted that northbound was unaffected by the incident. A check of UDOT’s traffic website after 8 p.m. didn’t show any delays or closures at the location.
