LOGAN, Utah, April 17, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials were investigating a fatal crash involving three vehicles Monday night in the area of 400 South and 100 West.
According to a news release from the Logan Police Department, multiple calls were received around 9 p.m., reporting the collision and subsequent rollover of one of the vehicles.
