County Sheriff’s Report
Officers spent the early morning hours of Feb. 9 clearing a dead moose from eastbound Interstate 80 after a motorist struck and killed the animal with his car.
The man struck the moose near Mountain Dell Reservoir in Parleys Canyon around 2:20 a.m., Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jeff Nigbur said.
The vehicle rolled onto its top and emergency responders had to help remove the driver from the car. The 75-year-old Summit County man was transported via ambulance in fair condition for treatment of a head laceration at a hospital in Salt Lake. He was reportedly driving in the inside lane when he swerved to miss the moose and struck the animal with the left side of his car.
"He said it really happened really fast," Nigbur said.
Meanwhile, deputies spent much of the day Tuesday removing the remains of a single-engine airplane from a hillside near U.S. 40. Summit County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Dave Booth said snowmobiles and a snow cat were used to remove the plane.
"We had some aircraft mechanics," Booth said. "They actually disassembled the plane."
50-year-old Mark Harmon, of Laurel, Mont., died Jan. 2 after he crashed the Beechcraft plane near Jordanelle Reservoir. The engineer was commuting for work in Spanish Fork.
