LOGAN — A 27-year-old Tremonton man was critically injured Saturday evening in a motorcycle accident south of Trenton.

Utah Highway Patrol Corporal Phil Rawlinson said Jeremy Jones was traveling southbound on State Road 23 when he lost control of the motorcycle he was riding, striking a tree and fence post, before coming to a rest in a field.

Jones was not wearing a helmet and suffered a head injury and also a partially amputated leg. He was transported by ambulance to Cache Valley Hospital and then flown by Aircare helicopter to Ogden Regional Hospital.

Rawlinson said Jones was traveling with his father, who was riding a separate motorcycle.

Jones’ father told troopers he and his son had gotten into an argument earlier in the afternoon. Jones reportedly became upset and began riding away at a high rate of speed.

The accident occurred near milepost 21 and was reported at 6:46 p.m.

Rawlinson said no citations have been issued but troopers believe excessive speed and possible alcohol impairment were contributing factors. The investigation is ongoing.
