Man arrested after DUI accident in Logan Canyon

Dusty Jacobsen, 37, from Farr West, arrested for driving under the influence, reckless driving and carrying a dangerous weapon, all class B misdemeanors.

LOGAN — A 37-year-old Farr West man was arrested for driving under the influence, after rolling his vehicle Monday afternoon in Logan Canyon, US 89.

Utah Highway Patrol trooper Phil Rawlinson said Dusty Jacobsen was driving southwest near Rick Springs, when his vehicle left the roadway and flipped end-over-end. The vehicle came to a rest in the trees about 80 yards from the road.

Witnesses told Rawlinson, Jacobsen was speeding and recklessly passing other vehicles before the accident. It is estimated he was traveling between 70 and 80 mph.

Jacobsen was wearing his seat belt and sustained minor injuries. He refused medical care from paramedics on the scene.

Rawlinson said a blood alcohol test showed Jacobsen had been drinking. He was taken to the hospital and checked before being booked into the Cache County Jail. He is facing initial charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving and carrying a dangerous weapon, all class B misdemeanors.

Bail has been set at $2,730.

Rawlinson said the way Jacobsen was reportedly driving, it’s lucky that he didn’t hit anybody.

Monday’s accident is the second DUI in four days. On Friday, 29-year-old Tyrus J. Miller and 29-year-old Ashley P. Wright were hospitalized after their vehicle crashed near Stokes Nature Center.

Miller was taken to Logan Regional Hospital and later flown to McKay Dee Hospital. He is still in critical condition.
