4 hurt in SLC crash brought on by speed, suspected impairment 

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – A driver of a Mini Cooper traveled at a high rate and was allegedly impaired when they crashed into a Kia Friday, resulting in injuries to four people. 

This wreck took place around 1 a.m. at the South 700 East and East 600 South intersection, according to Gephardt Daily. Officials said the Mini Cooper motorist was traveling east on 600 South when they collided with the Kia. 

Salt Lake City Police said the Mini Cooper driver and passenger were arrested. Officials did not specify what the driver was being charged with. However, they did say that the passenger was arrested because they had been “interfering with the investigation.” 

The motorist sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries. It is unclear if they were taken to a hospital or if the passenger was hurt. 

All the Kia occupants were sent to a hospital for treatment. The driver sustained minor injuries, while one passenger suffered serious, non-life-threatening injuries, and another was left in critical condition. 

This is a developing story. More information will be posted when it becomes available.
