Beaver Creek accident

Just heard on the local news that someone went over the side up Beaver Creek somewhere. Does anyone know what happened. Anyone hurt? Hope not.

Sad

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and the corporations will grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered

Moab,

Yes, a young man in a Jeep did not make the last big turn coming down from Beaver.
If you know where I am talking about  then you know the rest of the story.

He did not survive, God bless and keep him.

I know nothing of the circumstances, perhaps his brakes failed, tried to miss a deer,
fell asleep.  Really we do not know.  They suspect it was at night or at least late evening.

His jeep was all the way in to the bottom.  The last drop was 50 feet of rock ledge.
They are not sure if the Jeep can ever be removed.  BTW, it shares the same locaiton
as an ATV that went off a few years back.

I am not trying to imply that he was speeding and lost control BUT
I am very conerned over the speed I see people riding ATVs on that section of road.
All those swisty hairpin turns are a lot of fun, but they are deadly.  That road seems
to take a lot of ATV's more than its fair share.  It has a lot of loose gravel and slopes
into the canyon almost all the way up.  If you start sliding you will be surprised how far
your momentum takes you to the edge.  I have scared myself several times coming
home in a hurry, late in the day, a little cold from a long ride etc.

Freddy the Beaver Creek trail is the 02 and the last big turn I beleive is the last hair pin.

Lots of sad faces at the Marysvale Ward Service today.  Apparently a new family in the ward.

I was up that route on Monday.  The skid marks were very visible where he went over the edge.  It is straight down through some cliffs.  It is so steep you'd need to tie down and go down it with a rope.

Sounds like he was coming down the mountain at around 7:30 AM and had the sun in his eyes, at least that's the rumor.
