LOGAN — Police and emergency crews responded to an accident early Thursday morning that sent one person to the hospital. The crash occurred just before 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of 1000 W and US-89/91.
Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said a white Yukon was attempting to turn left onto the highway, and pulled out in front of two vehicle that were driving south. A silver Jeep collided with the Yukon and then hit a Nissan Rogue.
“The only person that was injured was the driver of the Nissan Rogue,” explained Hooley. “She was transported to the Cache Valley Specialty Hospital. She was alert and conscious, and hopefully doing well.”
The accident blocked traffic along US-89/91 for over an hour as police investigated the crash and cleared the vehicles.
Hooley said investigators believe the driver of the Yukon didn’t yield to oncoming traffic, while trying to turn onto the highway.
“There were several other vehicles on the roadway, a bus had driven just past him and he let the bus go. He felt like the roadway was clear and didn’t see the silver Jeep, and started his left turn.”
It is expected that the driver of the Yukon will be cited for failing to yield.
Hooley said, luckily the accident wasn’t more serious.
“Yeah, very fortunate with the speeds out there.”
The crash remains under investigation.
