PHOTO: A 73-year-old man was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center via Intermountain Life Flight Sunday after rescue crews responded to a call that he had crashed his dirt bike on a trail just north of LaVerkin.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Darrel Cashin said Search and Rescue personnel, as well as emergency personnel from Hurricane Valley Fire, responded to the crash on the Toquerville Twister Trail Sunday at around 12:30 p.m.
The man was riding dirt bikes with family on a section of narrow single track with a ravine on one side. The man was unable to navigate the narrow part and fell into the ravine along with the dirt bike, Cashin said.
Cashin said he did not know whether the motorcycle hit the man during the fall, but he was complaining of a lot of back pain.
Based on the location and injuries of the man, Hurricane Valley Fire called Life Flight to assist.
