Tooele County Accident; California Doctor Injured

Salt Lake City – Amid adversity, the Cornelsen family confronts the challenge of recovery after a tragic accident left Dr. Ronald Cornelsen, his daughter Heather Williams, and her husband severely injured.

What began as a brave and selfless act of stopping to assist in an emergency turned into a devastating twist of fate.

Accident Details

Less than half an hour’s drive from their hotel, Cornelsen, Williams, and her husband witnessed an accident on November 6 in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80.

According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a pickup truck attempted a U-turn to help jump-start a stranded car on the side of the road. However, as the truck turned, another car collided violently with its side.

After parking their car at a safe distance, Cornelsen and Williams went to check on the victims, of whom only one suffered minor injuries.

But then a cargo truck crashed into the T-boned pickup, pushing it towards Cornelsen and Williams. Both were trapped under debris, and severely injured.

The Cornelsen family, in their quest for support during this challenging time, has turned to online solidarity by creating a GoFundMe account.

The magnitude of the accident has brought significant costs, especially in terms of transportation and medical care needed for recovery. The Cornelsen family faces an overwhelming financial burden, and the community has the opportunity to make a difference by contributing to this noble cause.

The generosity of those who have responded to the call for help is truly inspiring. Even in the face of adversity, the community comes together to support the Cornelsen family on their path to recovery.

In this difficult moment, our thoughts are with Dr. Ronald Cornelsen, Heather, and her husband. We wish them a speedy and complete recovery. May the solidarity and support of the community serve as a balm to ease the burden they face and provide the strength needed to overcome this challenge.
