Winter conditions cause three cars to end up in Logan River
LOGAN, Utah — Winter conditions are making the roads hazardous in northern Utah.
The Utah Highway Patrol says three different vehicles ended up in the Logan River up Logan Canyon on Saturday. Fortunately, only minor injuries were reported.
The first incident occurred near mile post 474.2 around 7:30 a.m. The UHP says the roads were slick with ice and slush.
In this incident, the UHP says a 20-year-old rolled down a 20-foot embankment. The UHP says the driver only sustained minor injuries.
Roughly a half hour later, another vehicle went into the river less than a mile south of the first crash. In this incident, the vehicle did not roll as a result of the winter conditions. And the occupant of the vehicle was not injured.
At noon, a mother and a daughter were traveling southbound near milepost 478.4. The UHP says the vehicle crossed the centerline and rolled down the embankment. The vehicle ended upside down in the river. Both occupants suffered only minor injuries.
