Two students injured in a Monday morning crash in Logan
LOGAN, Utah — A two-vehicle accident Monday morning sent two high school students to the hospital with serious injuries.
According to police, the accident occurred at 1800 South 1000 West at 7:45 a.m.
Logan Police Chief Gary Jensen told CacheValleyDaily.com that incident involved a red Nissan Altima with two occupants and a water truck. Jensen says the Altima was either trying to cross 1000 West or turn left. The Altima pulled out in front of the water truck, which struck the vehicle in the driver’s side door.
Jensen also told CacheValleyDaily.com that authorities believe the driver of the vehicle didn’t see the water truck coming, which was traveling south.
Jensen also said the collision between the vehicle and the water truck forced the Altima to strike a third vehicle – a Chevy Spark.
Authorities also report that the water truck was empty. However, it was still traveling around 55 mph just prior to the crash.
Both occupants of the vehicle required extrication and were transported to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries.
