LOGAN, Utah, Aug. 10, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — An 11-year-old boy was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City with a serious head injury Thursday afternoon, following a crash that sent several people to the hospital.

According to Logan Police Lt. Curtis Hooley, the accident happened at about 4:20 p.m. when a blue Nissan Pathfinder was traveling northbound on 1000 West and tried to make a left-hand turn onto 200 North.

A white Chevy Cobalt was heading south on 1000 West, and the two vehicles collided in the intersection.

The impact of the crash pushed the Cobalt into a semi-truck that was stopped in the turn lane on 200 North.

Hooley said the 11-year-old was a passenger in the Chevy Cobalt, driven by a 17-year-old female.  A 19-year-old male and an 18-year-old female were also passengers in the car. They all were transported to the hospital. Hooley didn’t have a current report on the extent of their injuries, but said they appeared to be serious. He said the 11 year old had a fractured skull.

The two people in the Nissan Pathfinder had minor injuries. The driver of the semi was not injured.

Hooley said the crash is still under investigation, and the boy’s injuries and recovery will probably factor into the investigation.

He said witnesses told police the light was yellow when both vehicles proceeded into the intersection.
