One man died, and another was taken to a hospital after their single-engine plane crashed just south of Powder Mountain Saturday morning.
Some people were injured when the small airplane they were in went down near southern Utah’s famous ski mountain this past weekend. The accident happened about ten miles from where hundreds gathered for the annual Winter Carnival at North America’s largest snow park on Friday night.
Emergency crews responded to a report of an airplane crash in the 7739 E. Horizon Run Road area shortly after 10 am and found one man had been ejected from the aircraft and was dead, while another man was alive with extensive second and third-degree burns according to Weber Fire Deputy Chief Marshal David Reed.
Emergency personnel was called out this morning at around ten o’clock when it is reported there may have been some sort of plane crash near 7792 East Horizon Drive off Route 329 just past Dry Ridge Reservoir for people who are interested in knowing details about where that might be located on Google Maps or what route you would need to take if traveling Northbound down Highway 18 then turn right onto Jeffersonville Pike which will bring you directly into town.
The man who survived the deadly crash was airlifted by a medical helicopter to the University of Utah’s burn center. This is where he will receive any necessary treatment for his injuries and participate in rehabilitation. The names and ages of both men are not available at this time but these details should be released soon after they have been made aware to loved ones that their family member has died or survived as well as giving them a room with privacy during this difficult time.”
A fire was also started by the crash, according to Reed. Fire crews were able to contain it and officials say Weber County Sheriff’s deputies assisted in response efforts alongside Ogden City firefighters.
The crash remains under investigation.
