Very sad and a good reminder that what we do as a hobby can be dangerous.

 

13 YEAR OLD BOY KILLED IN ATV ACCIDENT AT CORAL PINK SAND DUNES

CORAL PINK SAND DUNES STATE PARK – A 13-year-old boy was killed,  after an OHV accident at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Kane County.

At approximately 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, the Utah County boy was riding a four-wheeler with friends and family when he went over a dune and tumbled down the other side multiple times; sustaining fatal injuries. He was wearing a helmet at the time.

Following the accident, family members transported him from the scene of the accident to the park’s visitor center where they met medical personnel, state park rangers, and a Kane County Sheriff’s Office Deputy.

Kane County medical personnel performed CPR and Classic Air Medical helicopters were dispatched and landed at the scene. However, the boy was pronounced dead by the medical personnel by the time helicopters had landed.

At this time, the accident remains under investigation by the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation.

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of those involved in this tragedy. We would like to remind everyone to please practice safe riding procedures when out recreating this season.
