HERRIMAN (News4Utah)- On the evening of Monday, April 9th the lives of the Skankey family would forever change.
It was just after 7:15 p.m.

As they approached the intersection near Mountain View Corridor the driver of a 1997 green GMC truck came charging through a red light, crashing into them and a nearby car.
Alice was killed instantly. Her parents and 2-year-old sister were taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
Police said Alice’s parents and sister are improving. They were released from the hospital late Wednesday afternoon.
