the OVERflow Roger Kirwan’s miraculous escape
Roger Kirwan, owner of Kirwan Print Group,
is recovering back home in Sydney after being seriously injured in June when a speeding truck ploughed into an outdoor table at a Starbucks in Salt Lake City and killed one of two friends he was meeting for a coffee.
“Iwas in hospital in critical condition
for four days, with
multiple injuries including a punctured lung and many fractures and including a
vertebrae,” Kirwan told Print21. “My brother came to the US to assist in getting me home.”
Kirwan is now back at work at Kirwan Print in Brookvale.
The victim of the accident has been identified as 48-year- old Joslyn Spilsbury, a mental health counsellor of Salt Lake County and the mother of a young daughter.
Police believe the driver, 34-year-old West Walker of Oakley, Utah, suffered some kind of medical episode, perhaps a seizure, prior to the crash. They were awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
“We have information that a truck driving on Highland at a high rate of speed went over the
curb, and went into Starbucks,” Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera told Fox13. “One person is deceased. The truck driver was just extricated. It doesn’t look like it was intentional.” Two children inside the truck also suffered minor injuries.
Just weeks earlier, Kirwan announced that Kirwan Print Group was planning a major expansion that will include doubling its factory size and investing in new technology to transform the group’s Roller Poster unit into full service flexible packaging company called Creatabull Flexibles. 21
