FROM GEPHARDT DAILY – SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah, Jan. 2, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — New details have been released after the arrest of a driver involved in a fatal accident on Wednesday.

Wiloja Susungu, arrested on Wednesday, his 46th birthday, is charged on suspicion of automobile homicide negligence — DUI of alcohol and/or drugs, a third-degree felony.

The accident happened at the intersection of 300 West and 2700 South, in South Salt Lake.

“Two vehicles were involved,” a statement released Wednesday by the SSLPD says. “One driver was transported to an area hospital in critical condition. The other driver succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. There were no other passengers in either vehicle.”

The victim, whom SSLPD has said is a woman in her 30s, has been identified by investigators, but her name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

Lusungju’s probable cause statement adds details.

“Wilonja’s vehicle was involved in a traffic collision which resulted in the death of another driver,” it says. “The collision is still under investigation, however, initial evidence at the scene indicates that one of the vehicles involved failed to obey a traffic control device and speed appeared to be a factor.
