SUV plows through concrete wall at I-215/I-80 interchange
An out-of-control SUV crashed after plowing through a concrete barrier wall while attempting to take a ramp from Interstate 215 to Interstate 80 in Salt Lake City Monday morning.
Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jalaine Hawkes said the 49-year-old woman driving the 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe was taken to the hospital for treatment of what initially were believed to be minor neck and back injuries.
The crash occurred about 5:45 a.m. Witnesses said the woman was traveling northbound on I-215 and lost control when she attempted to make a lane change to get onto eastbound I-80. The SUV burst through the concrete barrier and a fence before sliding down an embankment and coming to rest near some Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
