LOGAN — A man allegedly fleeing from law enforcement caused a two vehicle crash that sent him to the hospital Tuesday night. The crash was reported around 9:30 p.m. in southwest Logan.

Logan City Police Lt. Barry Parslow said officers were originally called to an apartment complex near 945 W. 2200 South, on a reported aggravated domestic assault.

According to emergency radio traffic, a woman claimed the suspect had threatened her with a gun and then left, driving away in a gray Mercedes. 

A Cache County Sheriff’s deputy located the suspect vehicle near 800 W. 3200 South. The car continued onto US-89/91, where it reportedly drove into oncoming traffic. 

Law enforcement continued pursuing the vehicle and witnessed it striking another car near 1380 W. 1800 South. The other vehicle had three juvenile occupants. 

Deputies immediately radioed for paramedics and began providing first-aid. The suspect reportedly had multiple compound fractures. The back passenger in the other vehicle was also injured.

Parslow said the suspect was transported to Logan Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Occupants of the other vehicle were treated at the scene of the crash and released.  

Law enforcement reportedly searched the Mercedes and located a BB handgun. 

Parslow said the investigation into the aggravated assault and the injury accident are still ongoing. The Northern Utah Critical Incident Protocol Team, being led by the Cache County Attorney’s Office has been initiated to help with the investigation. 

The suspect has not been identified.
