OGDEN, Utah (ABC4) — A semi-truck driver suffered critical injuries following a load shift accident in Ogden on Thursday, Dec. 15, according to Lt. Will Farr with the Ogden Police Department.

Farr said the driver was driving eastbound on 1300 W Hinckley Drive around 10 a.m. when the traffic in front of him slowed down. As he hit his brakes, the load he was carrying on his truck came through the back of the trailer and through the cabin.

The impact left the driver with critical injuries, and he was transported to a local hospital.
