Overheated brakes cause semitruck crash into Utah condos

August 16, 2019 GMT

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A semitruck has crashed into a Utah condominium community near the location of a similar crash last year.

KUTV-TV reported Thursday that Utah Highway Patrol reported that a semitruck carrying chocolate milk crashed into condos in Garden City about 122 miles (196 kilometers) north of Salt Lake City.

Authorities say the crash was a result of overheating brakes and that the driver sustained non-life threatening injuries.


Officials say the crash occurred just west of where a semitruck drove into a sporting goods store October of last year after its brakes overheated on Highway 89 killing the driver.

Authorities shared a video on Twitter of the semi driving down the highway and crashing into the condo community.

Authorities say it was “very unfortunate no one was in this semi’s path.”
