LOGAN–A two vehicle accident Thursday morning sent two women to the hospital and blocked traffic on Highway 89/91 in south Logan. According to Logan City Police Lieutenant Brad Franke, a gray Saturn was traveling south on Highway 89/91 and tried to turn left onto 2300 South, pulling in front of a Grey Chevy Lumina traveling north. The collision between the two vehicles caused the Lumina to go off the road and into a power pole.
With the power pole laying on top of the Lumina, Lieutenant Franke said rescuers were concerned for the two women in the car. Franke said, “The passengers of the Lumina, there were two female passengers, both appeared to be stable, they were conscious, they were able to talk to them (the rescuers). So they had them stay in the car and sit there until Rocky Mountain Power came out, could make sure all the lines and everything were safe. And then they were able to get the two ladies out of the car.”
Both women were transported to Logan Regional Hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the Saturn was released from the scene with no injuries. Power was out in the area while Rocky Mountain Power replaced the damaged power pole. North bound traffic was diverted and sound bound traffic was restricted to one lane while crews cleaned up the wreckage. Lieutenant Franke said they are really lucky this accident wasn’t worse.
