MOAB, Utah (AP) -- A 47-year-old Moab man is dead after losing control of his motorcycle while riding on slick rock and going over a ledge.
It happened just after 8:30 p-m last night.
Sheriff's deputies say Scott W. Peterson was riding on the slick rock in the Sand Flats Lions Back area when he lost control of the bike and plunged 40-feet over a ledge onto rocks below.
He suffered head and internal injuries and was transported to Allen Memorial Hospital in Moab where he was pronounced dead.
