An accident occurred yesterday when a Farmington woman, returning from her friend’s house in Bountiful, fell off a steep embankment while driving and died. Mist Moore Affleck, not from the area and thus unfamiliar with the surroundings, took her vehicle too close to the edge of her friend’s driveway and fell off the side, tumbling 30 foot down a tiered rock wall to her death. A passerby noticed the vehicle several minutes after the incident occurred and called 911, but to no avail, the vehicle having crushed Ms. Affleck.
Our hearts go out to the friends and family of Ms. Affleck. This is truly an unfortunate accident and a loss for many.
In the event that another party was found liable for such an accident, acting in negligence, a Utah injury attorney would be able to the help the family of the deceased recover compensation for the death of their loved one. Such compensation would allow them to better pay the medical, funeral and other costs that mount following fatal accidents. Contact the personal injury attorneys at the Christensen Law Firm should you or someone you know have such a need.
