A RubySnap cookie franchise in Salt Lake City was defaced when a car crashed right into the front door at around 7:20 pm. The impact caused the front entrance to crumble and cave in. Thankfully, the occupants of the vehicle only sustained minor injuries. Fortunately, there were no casualties reported inside the building as it was closed for business at the time and there was no one inside.

The collision was a result of a roll-over accident. Two cars, one headed northbound and the other westbound, collided into each other sending the northbound car into the building. Reportedly, one of the cars had run a red light.
RubySnap took to Facebook when they light heartedly posted saying the cookies were fine and people would be able to collect their orders on the following day from the back entrance. Investigators are trying to establish the how much damage had been done to the building from a financial stand point.

Car accident laws in Utah
According to Salt Lake City accident attorneys, like many other states in the nation, Utah is a declared a ‘no-fault’ accident state. What this means is that irrespective of who was at fault in an accident, all parties involved are required to seek compensation from their own insurance providers in case of any damage to property or person.
The claim is known as a personal injury protection (PIP). However, state laws have capped the amount PIP victims can receive from their insurers to a maximum of $3,000. Local attorneys know the laws in that area, thus you should consider finding a fantastic attorney using USAttorneys.com.
In some cases damages may run way beyond the $3,000 amount. It is strongly suggested that in such cases, victims appoint an experienced Salt Lake accident attorney who will ensure their client will not have to pay for someone else’s mistakes.
