Park City driver hits rock wall


A 21-year-old Park City man escaped with only minor injuries after he drove his vehicle through a wood fence and hit a rock wall on Landmark Drive near Walmart over the weekend.

The driver was transported to the University of Utah Hospital with minor injuries associated with air bag deployment and was later released. He was cited for driving under the influence, improper turn violation and a driver’s license violation, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office call logs. The report states deputies suspected the driver had been "huffing" toxic chemicals.

Friday at around 4:20 p.m., the vehicle left the road, went through a fence and what was described as a large catch-basin pond before colliding with a rock wall. The driver was using a friend’s car when the accident occurred. A witness claims the driver never hit his brakes and drove directly into the fence.

No other vehicles were involved.
