West Valley City police Lt. Dalan Taylor said the accident began when a red pickup truck rear-ended a car, triggering more crashes involving another, red pickup which collided with the same car again, forcing it to sideswipe a second passenger car.

Two of the drivers complained of neck and back pain but neither one of them was transported to the hospital,. Taylor said.

Taylor said that just before the collisions, traffic in the area had slowed due to a WVCPD officer’s pulling over of another motorist. Both the officer and the pulled over driver were off the road and out of traffic when the crashes occurred.
