LOGAN (ABC 4 News) – Community members are rallying behind the family of a Logan man who was killed in a drowsy driving crash Sunday.
Logan Police said a driver traveling northbound on U.S. 89 around 1:30 p.m. when they fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a white SUV going the opposite direction.
Devin Seamons, the driver of the SUV, passed away from injuries sustained from the crash. His wife, Jordin and 2-year-old daughter survived with minor injuries.
“I received a message on Instagram from a friend just a couple hours after the crash. My heart just dropped,” said Sharli King, friend of Jordin Seamons. “I wrote her back and said, ‘Are you sure he’s really gone? This can’t be true.’ I was in denial, because I put myself in that situation and losing my husband would be the absolute worst possible thing.”
Friends of Jordin Seamons said she met her husband when they were students at Sky View High School.
“She has loved Devin forever. I knew she had a crush on him before they even had a relationship,” said Katie Davis, friend of Jordin Seamons. “When you think of what a family unit should be, that’s what they are. It was just this tiny little circle of love and support for one another.”
Community members in Logan immediately began gathering donations and planning fundraisers upon hearing news of the tragic crash.
“This is a very close-knit community and right from the very moment I heard about it, there were people collecting donations,” said King.
As a wife and mother herself, King said she is heartbroken over Jordin’s loss.
“I just want to wrap her up in my arms, because this is going to rock her world. She’s going to be sad for a long time and all I can say and all I want her to know is that…we’re here,” said King.
King will be holding a fundraiser at The Studio in Logan on Monday, December 31st at 7:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. There will be a $5 drop-in fee for all participants of the High Fitness classes and donation jars for anyone who wants to donate more.
“There’s no other way to say it, we just love her. We want her to feel that love,” said Davis. “I can’t think of any more deserving people.”
Donations can also be made to any Cache Valley Bank or online via GoFundMe.
