WEBER COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) – At around 2 p.m. Friday, Weber Fire District crews responded to a traffic accident on Trapper Loop Rd. at approximately mile marker 11.
Emergency crews arrived to find a dump truck that had crashed in a heavily-wooded, deep ravine just after Hwy 39 and adjacent to Pineview Reservoir after losing its brakes.
Crews reportedly worked quickly to control a fire that had started in nearby vegetation.
Authorities say the driver was ejected from the vehicle during the crash, and sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver was taken to a local hospital via a Life Flight medical helicopter.
Reports initially stated there was a second unaccounted passenger, and authorities used two drones, as well as performed a grid-pattern search to locate a second patient.
Multiple fire and law enforcement agencies were reportedly involved in the search, but a second patient was not located.
The incident was then turned over to Utah Highway Patrol for further investigation.
No further information is currently available.
