TAYLORSVILLE — A 39-year-old woman was injured Thursday after being thrown from a sport-utility vehicle and then pinned underneath it.
Unified Police Lt. Rosie Rivera said the accident happened at 4:20 p.m. near 4700 South and 2300 West.
A Ford Excursion was traveling east on 4700 South when a Toyota Camry turned in front of the SUV while attempting to get on the on-ramp to southbound I-215, Rivera said. The two cars collided, sending the Excursion into a nearby light pole.
"From there, she was ejected out of the Excursion and pinned under the vehicle," Rivera said.
It took emergency crews 15 to 20 minutes to get the woman out from under the vehicle, police said. She was transported to the hospital in serious condition, with a broken pelvis and back injuries. Police said the woman is expected to make a full recovery.
The driver of the Camry was not injured.
"At this point, we don't know who was at fault, but we've called our investigators out," Rivera said. "(They will) put together an investigation and figure out who was at fault."
