Driver found day after truck goes over Hobble Creek Canyon edge, flown to hospital

UTAH COUNTY – A driver was rescued by crews Tuesday a day after his truck went over the edge of the road and crashed in Hobble Creek Canyon Monday.

The driver appeared to be the sole occupant of the vehicle at the time of the crash, according to Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah Highway Patrol.

Cannon said the crash happened on the right fork road of the canyon, which leads into the Uintah National Forest.

He was discovered and taken out of the car Tuesday, and a medical helicopter responded to the incident, Cannon said.

Cannon said the driver appeared to have “relatively minor injuries,” including possible broken ribs, cuts and scrapes and was dehydrated. He was flown to the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo.

It was unclear how the vehicle went over the edge of the road.

This is an ongoing story. Additional details will be posted as they become available.
