Logan City Police Assistant Chief Jeff Simmons said a white pickup was traveling northbound on 1000 W. when the driver crossed the center median and struck a trailer that was being pulled by a truck heading south. The white truck continued in the southbound lane and struck as commercial delivery van head-on.

Police report the drivers of both the white truck and van were injured in the crash. Both were treated by paramedics and transported to the hospital in serious condition.

The occupants of the truck hauling the trailer were uninjured.

Traffic along 1000 W. was blocked in both directions for several hours while police investigated the crash. Debris was scattered across all four lanes of the road for more than 50-yards.

Simmons said officers are unsure what caused the driver of the white truck drift into oncoming traffic. The crash remains under investigation.

    Yesterday at 4:15 I was heading south on 1000 W in the right hand lane. I was talking to my son on the phone (on speaker). I saw a white truck pass by me driving north in the south bound left hand lane. I told my son–oh my gosh this white truck just passed me going the wrong way!! The truck was traveling in that lane for quite a while. I commented that I hoped the driver didn’t cause an accident. And sadly today I found out that he did cause an accident. Prayers to those involved. I am grateful I was not in the left hand lane at that time.

      Laura! Both drivers had injuries, but are both expected to make recoveries. It’s still unclear why he was in the wrong lane, but they are both alive and have connected with each other.
