Tooele, UT (November 4, 2023) – A massive motor vehicle accident was reported in Tooele on Friday afternoon, leaving nearly a dozen people injured.
On November 3, the Tooele City Police Department and firefighters were summoned to provide help at the scene of a major crash that occurred on North Main Street.
According to official reports, a semi-truck tractor-trailer was traveling near the 1000 block of the roadway when the vehicle crashed, causing a car dealership building to catch on fire. The incident prompted authorities to shut down a large portion of the roadway as they worked to battle the blaze.
A total of 27 vehicles were damaged as a result of the crash. Eleven people suffered injuries as a result of the incident. One of the victims was hospitalized in critical condition. Multiple other victims were transported to local hospitals for emergency care.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope all of the injured victims recover quickly.
