LOGAN — Utah Highway Patrol troopers suspect a man was driving under the influence for the second time in a week when he rolled his car in Logan Canyon. The crash Friday night shut down traffic along US-89, near the Tony Grove Lake turnoff, for more than an hour.
UHP Lt. Lee Perry said Tyler D. Zorn was driving a Toyota Solara southbound. Witnesses told troopers that he was driving very aggressively just before the crash and passing on double yellow lines.
Near milepost 479, Zorn is believed to have lost control of the vehicle, swerving off the right side of the roadway. The car rolled twice before landing on its wheels.
Zorn was wearing a seat belt but suffered a head injury during the roll over. He was able to climb out of the car and was treated by passersby until paramedics arrived.
Due to the location of the crash, troopers requested a medical helicopter. It transported Zorn to Ogden Regional Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Lee said Zorn was suspected to be driving under the influence at the time of the crash. A warrant for his blood was obtained as part of the investigation.
Troopers pulled over Zorn last Tuesday during a traffic stop. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle and failing to change lanes without signaling. He was booked into the Cache County Jail and later posted bail.
