A sandstorm rose up from high winds in Utah where it engulfed a highway reducing visibility to zero as vehicles began to collide resulting in a horrific pileup.
The sandstorm caused as many as 22 vehicles to be involved in the pileup as it significantly reduced visibility on the Utah roadway. The accident occurred on Interstate 15, near milepost 152.
The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) said the sandstorm resulted in eight deaths and 10 injuries, with at least three still in critical condition.
The Utah DPS said that the roadway became blocked after some minor crashes initially happened during the storm, and from that, more violent collisions then took place.
As they said since no one could see, people started stopping, and then there was just a chain reaction. Photos released by the Highway Patrol showed a line of wrecked vehicles, including large trucks and tractor trailers.
The department said the most significant crashes happened behind a semi with two vehicles becoming wedged underneath the back of the trailer.
And that they appeared to have been hit from behind by another pickup while another vehicle appears to have sideswiped the semi-trailer, as well.
Utah is in a region that is currently enduring some of the most extreme drought conditions in the U.S., which elevates the risk of sandstorms. The entire state has been in the two most extreme drought categories, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
The Biblical prophecies (Revelation 16) foretell in the future how the earth will become so hot from the sun that it will scorch humanity, as record heatwaves and drought are now signaling we are nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
