SALT LAKE CITY — Two residents in a Salt Lake City grocery store were killed Thursday after a truck collided with an apartment complex and two other vehicles, authorities said.
Two of the residents were fatally injured in the crash, said Salt Lake County Sheriff George Parnell.
The six adults who died were identified as Karen M. Nye of Provo and her two children: 11-year-old Jordan Nye of Provo; 13-year-old James B. Nye of Tivoli and 17-year-old Josepha B. Nye of Salt Lake City, t바카라사이트he sheriff’s office said.
They were identified as Laura O. White Jr., 54, and Larry Nye, 57, who lived together and were members of the Provo Country Day House church.
White, Oye, B. Nye and their wives, Nancy White and Kimberly White, and their son, Larry Nye, all died at the scene and were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Their deaths were not immediately known.
All three families were from Tivoli, according to the church records.
Parnell said the five other victims were not identified, but their age and sex were unknown.
“We continue to mour바카라사이트n the loss of all of these wonderful people, especially for our church,” said Rick Smith, a spokesman for Utah’s largest hospital system. “Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims.”
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Authorities said the area is about four miles northwest of Route 35N in Salt Lake City.
“We are investigating this accident as a separate accident,” said Mike Woodson, a spokesman for the Utah Highway Patrol. “We are in the process of investigating that accident. We will give you more information once we get the details that we have, but at this time we have no additional information to share.”
A video of the crashnatyasastra.com shows the truck driving into the two-story apartment building, which is on its roof, and the two other parked cars driving on the sidewalk outside.
The video appears to show one of the trucks hitting the roof. One of the cars, also on the roof, flies into the air.
“That guy was trying to help my mom. That guy was trying to assist my mom. They were both trying to save her life,” said Sharon Nye.
