Bountiful • A red vehicle sitting in a Bountiful driveway was flattened Thursday morning after it was hit by a runaway semitrailer carrying 45 tons of sand.
Nobody was injured in the crash that happened a little before 7 a.m. Thursday, but the front of a home was wrecked and the car crushed.
The truck driver had been hauling a full load of sand up an incline on the way to Bountiful Ridge Golf Course when he attempted to downshift, according to Bountiful police Sgt. Andrew Bryson. He couldn't get the vehicle in gear, and the brakes went out when he tried to stop it, police said.
