SANDY, Utah — An unfortunate accident Tuesday evening at a car wash in Sandy resulted in three people being injured and three cars being damaged.
Around 5:30 p.m., a pickup truck was going through the wash with a loose extension cord in the bed. One of the brushes managed to pick up the cord, which then began spinning, according to Sandy City Police.
The cord hit three cars that were also going through the wash, located near 9800 South and 700 East.
One car’s sunroof was broken, and the shattered glass caused injuries to three of the four people in the car. Two were taken to a local hospital by ambulance to be treated for “moderate” injuries, according to a Sandy City Fire Department spokesperson. The other was taken to a hospital for “mild” injuries, but not by ambulance.
Two more cars were also damaged; They both had their rear windshields broken.
