AirMed responds to tubing accident in Peter Sinks, Logan
LOGAN, Utah — Around 3:15 p.m. Saturday, February 4, a 34-year-old female sustained critical injuries after being struck by a snowmobile.
The accident occurred about 100 to 150 yards west of the Peter Sinks parking lot in Logan Canyon.
According to a release from Cache County Sheriff’s Office, a group of people had tied their tubes together in a “train” formation. Meanwhile, another individual began to drive a snowmobile uphill for another run.
However, as the snowmobile went uphill, it collided with the “train” of tubers going down the hill.
An AirMed medical helicopter responded and airlifted the female to the University of Utah for treatment.
Search and Rescue along with an ambulance responded as well. Furthermore, an off-duty medic was on the scene providing first aid while the helicopter was en route.
Cache County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind everyone to be careful and attentive while recreating this winter season.
We want to hear from you.
