On the afternoon of Tuesday, July 17, an accident involving four vehicles occurred on north Main Street, near the intersection with 400 North near where the road widens to four lanes. The car that caused the accident was driven by Frank Sadler, a tourist visiting from Dresden, Germany. “I don’t know how it happened,” Sadler said following the wreck. Sadler was returning to town from Arches National Park when he slammed into parked cars in front of Sweet Cravings. Police told Sadler no other moving vehicle was involved. Sadler was uninjured from the wreck, but his family members were taken to the hospital for examination. Sadler’s rental Mercedes SUV was flipped onto its roof following the collision with a parked car. At press time, the Moab Police Department had no additional information to release. The accident is still under investigation. 		                    Photo by Charles Bruce
