HEBER CITY, Utah, March 7, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials here Sunday were sharing a stranded motorist’s story as something of a cautionary tale.

The driver had roamed out of cell phone range, according to the team’s posted news release. The man had already spent one night in his truck. His plight was reported by a passerby.

“Please do not take your car or truck on the snowmobile trails,” the team advised. “Your car is not a sled.”
