The surviving family members of a Salt Lake City woman who was killed in a fatal car crash have been awarded $1.3 million in damages. The jury ruled that improper and impartial removal of snow from the road and ill-logical road design were the causes for the fatal accident.

As per a Salt Lake Tribune report, the deceased has been identified as 40-year old Diane Berg. However, according to Salt Lake City accident attorneys, as the deceased woman was found to be partially at fault for the crash due to a certain degree of negligence, her family will only be awarded a portion of the damages. They are set to receive $700,000.
The trial went on for a painstaking seven days before the jury began contemplating their ruling. According to investigators, the authorities had failed to remove a heap of snow which had come together to form a kind of a ramp like surface which launched Diane’s car off the road and over a guardrail. The incident occurred close to Interstate 215 in January of 2011.
Slow reaction by the driver
State attorneys countered allegations of negligence by saying that Diane’s driving was at least partly to blame as they were still in the process of removing the snow heap after a record measurement of snowfall. They also stated the obvious by saying that the accident and Diane’s death could have been averted if Diane had applied her brakes on time.
TRAX train accident in Salt Lake City
