BRIAN HEAD, Utah, Feb. 23, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman died Tuesday in a snowmobiling accident, and a man and woman were injured in the same incident just outside of Brian Head Resort.

The accident occurred at about 4 p.m. near Navajo Ridge, according to a news release from Brian Head Deputy Marshal Jared Burton.

Brian Head town marshals responded and administered CPR to the woman with assistance from an off-duty Los Angeles police officer, but the woman could not be revived.

An adult male was in critical but stable condition and was transported to Cedar City Hospital, the news release said. Another adult female was treated and released.

The names of the involved parties have not been released.

Brian Head Marshals want to remind the public to exercise caution as they participate in outdoor winter recreation on the mountain, the news release states.

“The safety of our visitors is extremely important to the Town,” Burton said. “Unfortunately, some of these activities involve risk, so we implore our guests to be familiar with their equipment and exercise appropriate caution at all times.”

Gephardt Daily will update this story as more information is made known.
