DAVIS COUNTY, Utah, Sept. 9, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A rollover accident in Farmington Canyon on Saturday night had crews from multiple agencies rushing to bring three patients up to the roadside.

Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Josh Boucher said the accident happened at about 7:52 p.m. on Francis Peak Road about a mile down from the radar towers.

A Subaru Forester rolled about 150 yards to the west side, Boucher said, leaving the vehicle’s three occupants pinned inside.

Personnel from Davis County Sheriff’s Office, Farmington Fire Department and Davis County Search and Rescue all responded and were able to extricate and bring the most seriously injured person — a woman — up to the road.

The other two individuals appeared to have minor injuries, and crews then worked to bring them up from where the Subaru landed.

Boucher said the three people in the vehicle are probably in their late 20s to early 30s. He did not have a report on their condition following the crash.

The accident is still under investigation and the cause has yet to be determined.

Boucher said, “There are two almost 90-degree bends in the road, and they may have just missed the curve.”

Gephardt Daily will update this story as more information becomes available.



  1. My husband and I came upon this accident right after it happened. Two men on an atv had stopped and two hunters witnessed it and made the call for help. Both my husband and one of the men who had stopped had previous EMT training. They both climbed down the mountain to assist. My husband stayed with the victims while the other gentleman came back up to meet the emergency crews. The female was hurt extremely bad and was in and out of consciousness. If these people hadn’t been in the right place at the right time it is very possible that the female would not have survived. The emergency crews busted their butts to rescue them but please don’t leave out the ordinary people who do extraordinary things. A special thanks to the hunters who stayed on scene and called for help and to Alex and his buddy who did all they could as well. And to my bad a** husband who kept calm in a traumatic situation, you’re my hero Keola perlac.

  2. I was also on the mountain at the time of the wreck and got there just after the air med helicopter arrived. Where they went off is really nasty and I am just thankful that they are ok for the most part. I keep waiting for more information and an update to this story. Hope it comes soon would like to know more about it.

    • It was my daughter. She is doing ok. Along with the other two. Got rought up quit a bit but will be ok. I want to say tank you To every one there.
