PAROWAN — Two people were critically injured in an off-highway vehicle crash Sunday afternoon on a popular ATV trail in the mountains between Parowan and Brian Head.

According to a public post made on Facebook by Iron County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, the crash happened at approximately 3 p.m. in the upper canyon of Second Left Hand Road.

Iron County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Humphries told Cedar City News the incident involved a single four-wheeler with two riders, a male driver and a female passenger.

“The four-wheeler hit a large rock, causing the wheels to jerk and ripping the handlebars out of the driver’s hands and making him unable to stop it before going off the edge of the roadway,” Humphries said, adding that the vehicle ended up approximately 40 feet down a steep embankment.
