LOGAN — A vehicle that rolled into the Logan River Thursday night sent four people to the hospital. The accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. near Logan Cave, along US-89.

Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Cade Brenchley said the SUV failed to negotiate the curve and rolled into the river near milepost 473. The roads were reportedly oily at the time because of rain and the recent resurfacing project in the canyon.

Troopers were told by witnesses that the vehicle was travelling below the posted speed limit prior to the crash. They believe the car’s tires may have lost traction.

The vehicle came to a rest on its top in the river.

Several motorists, who were driving along the highway at the time of the crash, stopped and were able to provide assistance and call 911. Four occupants were helped from the vehicle.

Troopers report life-saving CPR was performed on one occupant who was pulled from the river unconscious. He was revived successfully.

Paramedics transferred all four occupants to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    The driver of the suv that went into the river just happens to be the head of Logan City Street Department. Imagine that?
