Fatality Saturday night at Comp

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately there was a fatality this last Saturday when a side x side rolled at Comp hill. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and the passenger had injuries. I always hate hearing about these accidents. I don't know exactly how it happened, but it's always a reminder to always play it safe out there and wear proper safety gear.

I was there this weekend. The "W" was so hard on Saturday till about 2am Sunday. It was bad enough I could hardly shut the door on the trailer. We spoke with some people that had ran out to the hill around 10pm and saw the rangers there with the side x side on its side and sheets on the ground. I never heard the chopper and we were camped across the road from the ranger station. Always sad to hear.
