Woman charged with DUI manslaughter in crash that killed unborn child

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – A St. Augustine woman has been arrested and charged with DUI manslaughter following a crash that took the life of an unborn child, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Iesheia Logan, 24, was driving a car that ran stop sign and collided head-on with a pickup truck at the intersection of King Street and Holmes Boulevard in St. Augustine in September 2018.

According to the report, a 14-year-old girl, who was pregnant, was a passenger in Logan’s car, and she was seriously hurt in the crash. Her injuries resulted in the death of her unborn child.

Logan’s family members told News4Jax the 14-year-old who was pregnant is Logan’s younger sister.

“We didn’t know that she was pregnant. Nobody had knowledge that she was pregnant at all,” said Erica Logan, Iesheia Logan’s mother.

Erica Logan described her daughter as a loving mom of two children.

“She’s a very good mother. She’s a hard working mother. She has two jobs, and she does everything she can to provide for her kids,” Erica Logan said. "We love her, and we’re here with her 100 percent, and we’re going to stand behind her with everything.”

Investigators said Logan’s blood alcohol concentration level was .202, which is two-and-a-half times the legal limit.

Records on Wednesday evening showed Jordan was in the St. Johns County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Logan’s younger sister spoke with News4Jax. She has recovered since the crash.
