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.
