Person killed in single-vehicle accident in Logan Canyon



 — A witness told 2News that a Dodge truck with two men inside was driving “erratically” as it passed them westbound in Logan Canyon.

A few minutes later, the witness came across the truck, upside down in the Logan River at mile marker 473.5.

People who came upon the crash used a crowbar to get the truck open. They hooked a chain up to a semi truck that stopped to help get the men out.

There was initial confusion about who was driving, but an off-duty Logan police officer says the fatality was the driver.

The passenger, from West Valley City, was seen walking around , acting loudly before he was seated, uncuffed, in the back of a police vehicle.

The passenger was heard saying the driver was dead.

The canyon was closed at Right Hand Fork for about an hour.

Traffic is coming through one lane at a time during the investigation. Police will shut it all the way down again when they pull the pickup out.
