Eagle Mtn: Tragic ATV Accident

"A 10-year-old Eagle Mountain boy died Thursday afternoon after the 4-wheeler he was riding with his baby sitter rolled off a 22-foot cliff.

Tooele County sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Johnson said the boy was riding behind his 31-year-old female baby sitter at the Five Mile Pass Recreation Area, on the border of Tooele and Utah counties.

He said the pair rode up a steep embankment when the ATV either cut out or died and rolled backward off the cliff. When emergency personnel arrived, they found the pair lying to the right of the ATV."-SLTrib
