A 3-year-old boy died Saturday in a five-car crash in Taylorsville.
Police did not disclose the boy's name Saturday night. The man behind the wheel of a Dodge Ram pickup was allegedly driving recklessly on 5400 South, traveling west. By about 8:30 p.m., witnesses were already on the phone with 911 dispatchers about him speeding and driving in and out of traffic when he rear-ended a Subaru stopped for the red light at 1300 West, said Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal.
The boy, who was restrained in the Subaru, died.
The crash caused a domino effect, pushing the Subaru into the car in front of it, and so on, until five vehicles were involved in the crash.
