Justice Available to Family? Negligent Truck Driver? 6-Year-Old Killed and Mother, Kristi Kimball, Seriously Injured in Trucking Accident in Salt Lake City, Utah

Posted By Danny Dalton | September 12 2022 | Truck Accidents

A semi-truck collided with an SUV, killing a 6-year-old child and seriously injuring his mother and sister. According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a semi-truck was traveling westbound on I-215 near 500 West when it struck Kristi Kimball’s Hyundai Palisade SUV, which then struck four other vehicles. Kimball sustained serious injuries, as did her sister, Ruby, who was a passenger in the SUV. Tragically, 6-year-old Edison Kimball was killed. A friend of the family has started a Go Fund Me Page here.
