FARMINGTON — A man died after falling 100 feet in a UTV near the top of Farmington Canyon on Tuesday, officials said.

A 61-year-old West Valley City man fell over an edge on Skyline Drive in the canyon, Davis County sheriff’s detective Ty Berger said. The man later died from his injuries while still on the mountain.

A medical helicopter had been called out to hoist the man's body out of the canyon, Berger said. The man's body was about 250 feet off the road, and officials were still working to recover the body as of 10:30 p.m., Berger added.

No alcohol or drug impairment is suspected to be a factor in the crash, he said.

The man was with a group but was the only person in the UTV, Berger said. He did not identify the man. Several of the man's family members witnessed the accident, Berger said.
