I never fail to learn something new every day!
Go slow when entering Beaver.
Not that it makes a difference but I wonder if the dump truck had his four way on. I chain reaction of people swerving out of the way could have left ups with no time to do anything at 65mph compared to 30. I know if he didn't have time he was following too close I'm just saying in general.

Hoping no life threatening injuries by either of them, and a speedy recovery!
The article states the dump truck was travelling at 30-40MPH?
Many states have either a minimum speed for Interstae Highways, or language that implies "a motorist may not travel at a speed so slow as to impede the flow of traffic"
Anyone in Utah familiar with this?
I just can't imagine where a person could just putz along at a speed of a Residential street on an Interstate.
Should have at least been traveling on the shoulder with the 4 way flashers on.
I bet slow driver cause more accidents than speeders. It just that they are normally not the ones charged.
Lots of studies show speed doesn't cause most accidents. Difference in speed between 1 driver and another does.
So 5 cars doing 90 is safer than 4 at 65 and 1 at 30.
45 mph minimum speed under normal conditions.
Which honestly is probably5-10 mph too slow.
Oh yeah, when driving through the desert. Lucky it wasn't a Mercedes or Beemer driving a 110 MPH.
I can't weigh in until someone comments based on his vast knowledge of driving big rigs
8 to 12 seconds eye lead time.
Really it all depends how wide and how deep.
I always get a kick out of the people who are towing someone else on the interstate. Just a regular pick up pulling some crap car, going 20 in a 70. I just can't even fathom what goes on in these peoples heads. Not going to lie, some days I just want to just run right over them.
This took place in Beaver. Accidents happen in, around, and near that area.
When in doubt, pull out, or something like that
