Authorities reported the driver of the Fusion, “did not see the stop signed for westbound traffic and continued through.”
The driver of the Fusion was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Due the information given by the police, the injured individual may have a claim against the driver of the Fusion since the police hold the driver of the Fusion responsible for the crash. The occupant(s) of the Escape have every right to seek reparations for the damage and injuries caused by the Fusion driver. According to Utah law the injured occupants may have a right to make a claim against the driver of the Fusion or their insurance for their injuries, vehicle damage, the loss of loved ones and loss of enjoyment of life.
