Woman in wheelchair dead after being hit by cement truck in Logan

LOGAN, Utah — A woman died Friday morning after a cement truck hit her as she crossed Logan’s Main Street in a motorized wheelchair, according to police.

“It was just an unfortunate set of coincidences that took place,” Jeff Simmons, Logan’s Assistant Chief of Police said.

It was just before 10’clock Friday morning when traffic on Main Street in Logan came to a stop.   

Simmons said the truck struck local resident Tina Marie Jackman, 65, as it turned right at 200 North to go south on Main Street.

“There was backups all throughout the western portion of Logan because we couldn’t let anyone go southbound as we investigated the scene,” Simmons said. “The driver of the cement truck simply did not see her, he’s in a very high-profile vehicle, she’s in a very low-profile motor vehicle.

Jackman suffered extensive injuries and died at the scene. 

“It’s unfortunate, we feel badly for her and her family,” Simmons said.

He said the cement truck driver was extremely distraught and stayed there while investigators reconstructed how it all happened.  

“Simmons said, “He feels badly, from what I understand, it’s been quite an emotional toll, as it would be.”

Investigators did not say if the woman was in a crosswalk at the time of the crash or if either party traveled against any traffic lights in the area.

Jackman was the 44th person killed in an auto-pedestrian crash in Utah this year. Forty-five people died in auto-pedestrian crashes in 2021.

Logan Police pleaded with drivers to pay attention behind the wheel.  

“Slow down. Make sure the roadway is clear before you make that right turn on any roadway, not just main street,” Simmons said.  

Logan Police say they will work now with the city attorney to decide if criminal charges will be filed against the driver.
