In one hour, vehicles killed 3 pedestrians in Utah. Is it time to get serious about road safety?

At 10:45 a.m. in Sandy, police said a U.S. Postal Service truck struck a 5-year-old girl, killing her. Images from the scene show a children’s scooter lodged underneath the vehicle’s tire.

At 11:26 a.m., Salt Lake City police were notified about a crash involving two people — a driver “left the roadway,” hit a woman and her child, then fled the scene, according to the initial investigation. The woman died on the way to the hospital, the child is in critical condition and the driver is in custody, police said. It marked the 11th traffic-related fatality in Salt Lake City this year.

At 11:31 a.m., police in Spanish Fork received a call about a collision involving a semitruck and bicycle. Police say the cyclist “ran into the rear tires of the semi and was knocked off of his bike … then run over by the semi trailer wheels.” The cyclist, a 49-year-old male, died that afternoon at Spanish Fork Hospital.
