Two-car crash snarls Wellsville traffic Tuesday afternoon

No life-threatening injuries were reported but traffic was snarled for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon in Wellsville after a two-car crash sent three women to the hospital. According to the Utah Highway Patrol, a Volkswagen GTI driven by a 27-year-old female originally from Washington attempted a U-Turn while driving southbound on U.S. Highway 89/91 near Tom’s Service just north of the traffic light at the intersection with State Road 101. The vehicle reportedly collided with a Mazda 626 that was being driven by a 17-year-old Wellsville girl. The 15-year-old sister of that driver also was in the car, UHP Sgt. Rick Mayo said. The two teenagers were taken to Logan Regional Hospital to be treated for minor injuries, and the Washington woman reportedly was complaining of more injury problems and was transported to the hospital for a CAT scan, but none of the injuries were life-threatening, Mayo said. Traffic on the highway was restricted to one lane in each direction until just after 4:30, Mayo said. The crash happened at about 3:30 p.m.
