Salt Lake City man injured in accident on Mirror Lake Highway
Alcohol suspected to be a factor in the crash
A 23-year-old man from Salt Lake City was injured in a one-vehicle crash on the Mirror Lake Highway (State Road 150) on Friday, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.
At 6:33 p.m., a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero was traveling west on the Mirror Lake Highway just east of South Summit High School when he reportedly veered off the road and hit a tree, Sgt. Jed Jorgenson said.
The man was transported to the University of Utah Hospital in a medical helicopter with a suspected broken femur. He was wearing a seatbelt and air bags were deployed.
He was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to operate within his lane.
Meredith Reed was elected to a two-year term as chair of the Summit County Democratic Party and said she sees an opportunity to ride the so-called blue wave that saw a Democratic surge nationally and within the state.
