LOGAN, Utah — A motorcyclist died Thursday night after a crash in Logan involving an SUV.

Just after 8 p.m., crews were dispatched to a call of a crash involving a motorcycle and a Hyundai Palisade at 3100 S. US-89/91.

When officers arrived, they found CPR was being performed on the motorcyclist. The victim was taken to the local hospital where he later died of his injuries sustained in the crash.

Initial investigation information shows the man was traveling on the inside southbound lane of the highway when the crash happened. The SUV came off a side street, tried to turn left to go northbound, and collided with the bike, according to Capt. Curtis Hooley with the Logan Police Department.

Officials believe that the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The driver of the SUV is cooperating, and police said impairment does not seem to be a factor in the crash.

The victim was later identified as 24-year-old Spencer Scott Rawles of Brigham City.
