Officers conducted an investigation and found that a grey BMW passenger car was traveling Eastbound on State Street and drifted over the center lane and into oncoming traffic. A brown Chevy pickup was traveling Westbound in the inside lane as the BMW crossed over and struck this vehicle. The Chevy truck was driven by a male and had a male passenger; both were injured in the accident and transported by ambulance to DRMC. The male driver of the BMW was also injured and transported by ambulance to DRMC; he was the only passenger in that vehicle.
Officers had reason to suspect the driver of the BMW was under the influence of alcohol and was charged with DUI, as well as several other traffic related charges.
Both vehicles were disabled and had to be towed.
Utah Highway Patrol Troopers and Washington County Sheriff Deputies responded to assist.
