LOGAN — A 43-year-old Garden City woman had to be flown to an Ogden area hospital Wednesday morning, after a single-vehicle rollover near the summit of Logan Canyon, US 89.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cade Brenchley said Terry Lynn Wahlberg was driving south in a 2003 Ford Expedition, when she drifted off the road, over-corrected and then rolled.
“Initially she was talking a little bit,” said Brenchley. “By the time medical and law enforcement got there she was not talking at all. However, she was conscious and breathing, just not alert, just a blank stare.”
The vehicle came to a rest in the southbound lane. The doors of the Expedition were jammed so crews had to use extrication tools to remove Wahlberg from the crash.
Brenchley said, as a precaution Wahlberg was transported to Ogden Regional Medical Center by Air Med helicopter.
“We couldn’t figure out what was going on,” said Brenchley. “We assumed a head injury of some sort. She had vomited.”
<span class=”paragraph-1″>The accident was reported by a passerby who called 911 around 10:20 a.m.</span>
Traffic north of milepost 491 was blocked partially for a couple hours while crews investigated the accident.
Brenchley said troopers believe either fatigue or a possible seizure may have caused the accident. Wahlberg was wearing a seat belt.
