Woman in critical condition after south Logan motorcycle crash

LOGAN — A 23-year-old woman is in an Ogden hospital in critical condition after a truck verses motorcycle crash Monday night. The accident occurred around 9:30 p.m. near 2200 S. US-89/91.

Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said the woman was a passenger on the bike, driven by a man, travelling northbound. Near 2200 S., a pickup truck travelling south on the highway attempted to turn left in front of the motorcycle.

“The female passenger on the motorcycle received critical injuries and was ultimately air-lifted to McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden,” explained Jensen.

The woman was reportedly unconscious after the crash. The drivers of the truck and motorcycle performed CPR on her successfully until paramedics arrived on the scene.

Neither of the occupants on the motorcycle were wearing helmets. Police are not releasing their identities until they are able to determine whether the woman will survive.

Jensen said police are still trying to determine if the motorcycle was visible or if the truck failed to yield.

“That is part of the investigation that will be happening today, as we try and figure that out. Right now we can’t answer that question.”

The driver of the motorcycle was transported to Logan Regional Hospital. Police believe he suffered non-life threatening injuries and will recover.

    This is kind of a disturbing statement. The vehicle is responsible when turning into on coming traffic whether or not they thought they were visible or not. The motorcycle shares no fault in this with the evidence presented at this time.
