UTAH COUNTY –Officials have identified a man who died in an ATV accident Thursday in a remote area of northwest Utah County.
Micale Boren, 63, was discovered in West Canyon by another man riding in the area, Utah County officials say.
Boren was dead by the time rescuers reached the scene.
Police say Boren was thrown off his ATV when he hit an embankment. The vehicle rolled onto him and trapped him face-first to the ground.
Police say drugs may have been a factor in the crash, but the accident is still under investigation.
Sgt. Spencer Cannon, spokesman with Utah County Sheriff’s Office, said the man who discovered the crash had to travel some distance to get cell phone service before he could call for help.
West Canyon is near Camp Williams and the border with Tooele County.
