SANDY An 18-year-old Draper resident was killed in a two-car accident Thursday afternoon.
Just after 2:30 p.m., the man was driving on 1300 East near 12100 South when he took a turn going too fast on a wet road with bald tires, said Sandy Police Sgt. Victor Quezada.
"He goes around the bend, does a 360, starts a second 360, ... and as he's spinning a SUV in the opposite lane rounds the corner and broadsides him. The SUV driver had no time to stop," Quezada said.
The impact from the crash threw the young man's car 75 to 100 feet into a wall.
Alexander Duncan Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene. A 42-year-old woman driving the SUV suffered a possible broken ankle, and a 6-year-old girl in the SUV sustained a small cut on her wrist, Quezada said.
The driver of the SUV will not be cited, he said.
The message to drivers, especially teens, Quezada said, is to slow down, be conscious of the vehicle you're driving and know how well your car responds to the road.
