River crash

A Nissan Titan rests upside down in the river after it slid off the highway in Logan Canyon on Thursday evening. The vehicle's four occupants were sent to the hospital with reportedly minor injuries.

The Utah Highway Patrol suspects a combination of oil and water on the newly resurfaced roadway contributed to a crash in Logan Canyon that sent four people to the hospital Thursday night.

UHP Sgt. Cade Brenchley said the crash occurred at about 6:30 p.m. near Logan Cave, when the driver of a Nissan Titan traveling toward Logan hit a slick spot and slid off the road into the Logan River and landed on its top.
A medical helicopter was requested at the onset for the driver, 61-year-old Jed Al-Imari, who was unconscious when a passerby removed him from the vehicle and performed CPR.  He was talking and alert when medical personnel arrived.

Brenchley said Al-Imari has cracked ribs and minor cuts and bruises, while two grandchildren have minor bruising. His wife was reportedly uninjured.
