TOOELE, Utah – A 71-year-old man died Tuesday afternoon after the ATV he was driving rolled down an embankment.

According to Patrol Lt. Ron Johnson with the Tooele County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened around 2:20 p.m. in the Indian Creek Canyon Area near Tooele.

A couple was riding their ATV’s when the man fell off the trail, and his ATV rolled over him.
