ANTELOPE ISLAND, Utah — A hiker was trampled by a bison near Frary Peak on Antelope Island State Park Saturday afternoon, officials say.

According to ​Lt. Eric Stucki of Utah State Parks, a 30-year-old man from Davis County was hiking with a group when he was “struck” by a bison. He was transported by medical helicopter directly to the University of Utah Hospital in unknown condition.

Stucki said the incident will not affect park access or the trail.
