SANDY, Utah — A malfunction inside a Quick Quack Car Wash early Tuesday evening in Sandy sent several people to the hospital with injuries. Furthermore, the malfunction damaged three vehicles in total. One of the vehicle’s sunroofs broke and shattered onto the passengers. The back window of the other two vehicles broke.
