WEST POINT -- All three drivers involved in an accident that sent a truck crashing into a house have been cited by police.
Meanwhile, the man injured in the accident, Andrew Brown, was in fair condition Thursday, said Chris Dallin, spokesman for McKay-Dee Hospital. Brown's wife, Lauren Brown, was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday night.
The two were taken to the Ogden hospital after a silver Dodge pickup hit their home at 7:11 p.m. Wednesday, Davis County Sheriff's officers said.
The pickup was driven by Dustin McLaughlin, 26, of Clinton, according to a police report. He was booked in Davis County Jail and released on bail on charges of reckless driving and exhibition driving.
Officers said McLaughlin was following a blue Dodge Dakota driven by Cameron Jordan Scott, 19, of Clinton. Scott also was booked in the jail and released on bail on charges of reckless driving and exhibition driving.
Officers impounded both trucks.
A black box inside the silver Dodge recorded the speed of the truck at the time of the accident. According to the police report, the truck was traveling at 70 mph at the time of braking and 40 mph at impact.
Officers said the trucks were traveling south on 2000 West approaching the intersection of 550 North when a truck towing a fifth-wheel travel trailer pulled out in front of them.
The driver of that truck said he had been waiting for five minutes for the intersection to clear so he could make a left turn, according to police documents.
"He cleared the intersection and began turning when he heard the squeal of brakes," according to police documents. Henry Kidd, of Clinton, who was driving the truck and trailer, "stated he saw a truck driving south and it struck his trailer. Henry (Kidd) stated the vehicle came very quickly."
Scott's truck hit the travel trailer. McLaughlin swerved to avoid that wreck and hit the Browns' home.
Kidd was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
The intersection was closed for 21aN2 hours and it took five tow trucks to clear the wrecks.
