Troopers arrest motorist after single vehicle crash in Logan Canyon

LOGAN — Troopers arrested a Logan man who was reportedly driving recklessly through Logan Canyon Thursday afternoon, before crashing his truck near the Guinavah – Malibu Campground.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cade Brenchley said 24-year-old Anthony K. Wytsalucy was driving northeast on US-89 when he lost control on a curve near milepost 468 and drove off the road. The truck hit several trees before coming to a rest around 50-feet from the roadway.

Witnesses told troopers that Wytsalucy was driving erratically, passing multiple vehicles and speeding before the accident occurred. He reportedly told one of the paramedics treating him that he was driving around 85 mph before the crash.

Brenchley said troopers also detected a strong odor of alcohol and suspect Wytsalucy may have been intoxicated. An investigation is being conducted and charges are pending.

There were no one else in the truck and no other vehicles involved. He was transported by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital with minor injuries. Troopers later arrested and booked him into the Cache County Jail.

Wytsalucy is from New Mexico but is living in Logan, attending Utah State University.
