SAND HOLLOW STATE PARK — An out-of-state man was transported to the hospital with head injuries Sunday afternoon after rolling the side-by-side ATV he was riding in Sand Hollow State Park.
Around 3:30 p.m., medical responders were dispatched to the area of the park known as the Bowl on a report of an ATV crash after a 47-year-old man, who had been operating a Razor ATV, and his 14-year-old son, who was his passenger, rolled the ATV, Darrell Cashin, Washington County Sheriff’s deputy and search and rescue liaison, said.
The man sustained a head injury and a cut on his arm, Laura Melling, Sand Hollow Complex park manager, said. He was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George to be treated for his injuries.
The passenger sustained minor injuries, bumps and scrapes, Melling said, and was treated at the scene.
Neither of the two were wearing helmets at the time of the crash, she said.
The ATV sustained significant damage during the rollover and was rendered inoperable.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation, Melling said.
Sand Hollow State Park officials, Hurricane Valley Fire, Utah Department of Transportation and Washington County Search and Rescue responded to the scene.
