One person has died and multiple people were transported to local hospitals Sunday afternoon after four-vehicle were involved in a collision on U.S. Highway 89/91 near 2200 South in Logan.
A gray SUV collided with a white SUV in a glancing head-on, according to Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen. The driver of the gray SUV told police he had fallen asleep at the wheel.
A 29-year-old man in the white SUV died at the scene, Jensen said. The man’s wife and child were also in the vehicle and were transported to a hospital. All five occupants of the gray SUV were transported to hospitals, as well.
Two other vehicles were involved in the accident, but occupants of those were not taken to hospitals. One of those two vehicles was struck by debris from the collision but apparently no one inside was hurt.
Debris from the collision was scattered across the entire width of the highway.
Traffic is being diverted westbound on 10th West and eastbound at 3200 South.
Authorities reopened the road at about 6 p.m. after multiple hours of investigation and cleanup.
As of Sunday evening, police were not releasing the names of the people involved in the accident.
