No foul play found in toddler girl's death

A preliminary autopsy Saturday showed no evidence of foul play in the death of an 18-month-old girl in Kearns.

The girl was taken to a local hospital in full arrest Friday afternoon from a house near 4500 West and 4800 South. The girl was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Although the death was not being treated as a homicide, Salt Lake County Sheriff's detectives were doing some follow-ups with their investigation.

When deputies arrived at the house Friday, there was one adult watching 12 children all under the age of 10, said Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Paul Jaroscak. It was unclear whether the home was operating as an unlicensed day-care facility or if the woman was tending only the children of other family members, he said.

Man caught between trucks is hospitalized

WEST JORDAN — A mover was flown to a local hospital today after getting sandwiched between two trucks.

A moving company was loading furniture from a semitruck into a U-Haul near 7700 South and 4400 West just after 4 p.m., said West Jordan Police Sgt. Drew Sanders.

A man in his mid-40s got out of one of the trucks to set up a ramp to off-load the items between vehicles. What he didn't notice was the driver in the other vehicle was backing up to get closer, Sanders said.

The man became caught under the U-Haul truck. One leg was broken and the other suffered ligament damage, Sanders said. He was flown to a local hospital in non-life-threatening condition.
