LOGAN – Slick roads are believed to have caused a car to slide into the Logan River Friday morning, in Logan Canyon. Utah Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred near mile-post 475 on US-89.
Kevin Dunn was driving a Toyota Corolla east-bound when he came to a sharp corner and lost control. UHP said the car ran off the road to the right and rolled down a 40-50 foot embankment into the Logan River. It came to a rest, upright near the edge of the river.
Both Dunn and his passenger Michael Hurley were unhurt and able to climb from the car. They flagged down a passer-by, who transported to two back to Logan to report the crash.
UHP continues to ask drivers to exercise caution when driving in winter conditions and drive more slowly. When driving in mountain areas, roads may be clear in sunny areas but suddenly become icy in the shaded areas. Drivers are asked to take the extra time needed to arrive safely.
