A three-vehicle accident in Wellsville sent three people to the hospital. The crash occurred Friday morning at the intersection of US-89/91 and SR-101.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jason Kendrick said a 61-year-old Logan man, Thomas Nuttall, was driving a white Ford pickup truck southbound toward Sardine Canyon. As he approached the intersection, he failed to stop for a red light, striking a black Subaru Forrester that was traveling east, driven by Kimberly Howard, a 40-year-old woman from Wellsville. The car then spun around and struck a black Audi, driven by a Dallas Hillman, who had stopped in the left turn lane.
“Kimberly was transported, as well as her passenger, her husband Jon Howard to Logan Regional Hospital,” explained Kendrick. “Kimberly was in serious condition, as well as Jon was injured. I don’t think he was as serious as Kimberly. Dallas Hillman, in the Audi, was transported as well just as a precaution.”
Nuttall was not injured. All of the occupants were wearing seat belts.
Troopers believe the truck was travelling around 60 mph when it struck the Forrester. They believe Nuttall was distracted and did not see the red light.
“He said he just glanced down at his radio, looked up and realized the light was red. By then he was in the intersection and it was too late, the cars and other traffic had already started into the intersection.”
Troopers cited Nuttall for failing to stop at a red light.
