Multiple crashes in I-15 construction
Just as the crash site was cleared and traffic was again flowing smoothly, a second collision occurred just 200 yards from the first accident. Melissa Bradford, 32, Brigham City, rear-ended a car driven by 52-year-old Lori Orr of Middleton, Idaho. The impact sent Orr’s car into the back of a third car, driven by Trena Duley, 31, of Tremonton.
Moments of that, a third crash took place when Juanita Leal, 23, of Tremonton, rear-ended a car driven by 41-year-old Todd Atkinson, also of Tremonton. Atkinson traveled forward and collided with another car driven by Claudia Wrightson, 60, of South Jordan.
All three crashes are being investigated as separate incidences but included seven vehicles and 12 occupants. All 12 were wearing seatbelts and only one passenger involved in the third crash, 69-year-old Danielle Hankinson, Kings Beach, Calif., was transported to Bear River Valley Hospital with minor neck pain.
