MOUNTAIN GREEN, Morgan County — Rescue crews worked Tuesday night to find a 71-year-old motorcyclist who crashed in Morgan County.
In the 11:30 p.m. crash, the motorcyclist was thrown about 150 feet down the "steep" embankment along Trappers Loop, the Mountain Green Fire District said on Facebook.
The Utah Highway Patrol said the Harley Davidson motorcycle was southbound when it went around a curve and the rider went off the road and hit a guardrail.
"Mountain Green firefighters and Morgan deputies struggled downhill and reached the injured person, but our crew found that the driver had unfortunately succumbed to his injuries," fire officials said.
The man's name has not yet been released.
Firefighters and Utah Highway Patrol troopers "carefully searched in the blackness with thermal imaging cameras for any possible additional victims," according to the post. They did not find anyone.
