Second Crash In Logan River In Three Days, One Fatality

One person has died after being critically injured in a car crash in Logan Canyon on Monday. Utah Highway Patrol officials said the crash involving a Ford Escort and semi truck happened 12 miles northeast of Logan. Canyon travel was closed on U.S. 89 through Logan Canyon and Garden City for several hours, reopening at 10 p.m.

A Ford Escort traveling northbound on U.S. 89 went partially into southbound lanes and struck a southbound semi truck hauling a tanker with food-grade grease. The semi truck went off the right side of the southbound road and back across all lanes. The semi truck eventually landed in the Logan River, where it flipped on its side.
 
This is the second river rescue in that same area with a few days. On Saturday, crews rescued a mother and her four children after their mini-van landed in the rushing water.

At 14-years-old, Kerry began working as a reporter for KVEL “The Hot One” in Vernal, Utah. Her radio news interests led her to Logan where she became news director for KBLQ while attending Utah State University. She graduated USU with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and spent the next few years working for Utah Public Radio. Leaving UPR in 1993 she spent the next 14 years as the full time mother of four boys before returning in 2007. Kerry and her husband Boyd reside in Nibley.
