A Tuesday night crash in Murray cost the life of the motorcycle driver, Jan Grayson Eyring of Magna Utah. The motorcycle riders were taken to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition but Eyring was declared dead. The motorcycle was traveling south on 700 East near 4500 South when a sedan pulled into the road to make a left turn from an apartment complex on the west side of the street, said Murray police Sgt. Kasey Heaton. Both of the male motorcyclists were thrown about 20 feet after broadsiding the car. The passenger still had his helmet on but the driver appears to have either been not wearing a helmet or the helmet had been ripped from his head when the crash occurred because there were two helmets at the scene.
The motorcycle passenger and the driver of the vehicle have not been identified. The driver of the vehicle had only minor injuries and was released at the scene.
This motorcycle crash needs to be investigated and handled by an experienced motorcycle injury lawyer who is prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. There may well be facts revealed that complicate liability in this case. There may have been a number of facts that will complicate the case. There has been no mention of drug use or alcohol on the part of either the motorcyclist or the vehicle driver but that is one potential. Whatever the case all of the facts need to be discovered and addressed to make sure the responsible party is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
