Employee injured at PCMR sues
January 6, 2015
An employee of the Viking Yurt at Park City Mountain Resort was severely injured while driving a snowmobile as part of his job two years ago, according to a lawsuit filed last Tuesday, Dec. 30.
Matthew Wilson, the plaintiff, was transporting dirty dishes from the Viking Yurt, located near the Bonanza lift, to the resort’s Mid-Mountain Lodge on the night of the incident, Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013, according to the lawsuit’s complaint.
The complaint says that before dark, Wilson drove a load of dishes from the Viking Yurt to the Mid-Mountain Lodge by way of a cat-track used for such purposes. After sunset he made the return trip, during which he collided with "a large metal container" that was lying across the track.
"As a result of his collision with the metal container, Mr. Wilson was knocked unconscious, suffered severe personal injuries, and was life flighted to the University of Utah ICU," the suit reads.
Wilson still suffers from the injuries and is in ongoing treatment for them, according to the suit. He is seeking an amount "greater than $300,000" from the resort.
