WEST JORDAN — A 2-year-old girl was killed and her mother and another sibling were hospitalized Monday in an accident between a cement truck and a passenger car.
A call was received at 4:37 p.m. Monday about an accident at the intersection of U-111 and Old Bingham Highway, said West Jordan police officer Ian Adams. A cement truck from Metro Cement was traveling north on state Route 111 and collided with a passenger car at the intersection.
The car ended up in a field, although police are unsure if it rolled.
The mother, in her 20s, was extricated and flown by medical helicopter to University Hospital in critical condition. The youngest child, younger than 1 year old, was taken to Primary Children's Medical Center by ambulance in stable condition.
The 2-year-old daughter was taken by helicopter to Primary Children's Medical Center where she died as a result of her injuries, Adams said.
