WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A 19-year-old man who died Saturday after rolling a utility task vehicle rollover in Middle Fork Canyon has been identified as Jaden Parent of Ogden.

Sgt. Chad Allen with Weber County Sheriff’s Office said Parent and his 18-year-old brother rolled their UTV, also known as a side-by-side,  around 8:55 p.m. Saturday in the Sun Ridge area of Middle Fork Canyon.

The crash occurred in a private area in the vicinity of some cabins.

The rollover occurred when the pair went around a corner, and the 19-year-old was ejected from the UTV—which then rolled over him.

The pair returned to camp and someone suggested they go to the Emergency Room to be checked out. The 19-year-old then lost consciousness, and they called for help.

A medical helicopter responded and rescuers spent nearly an hour trying to revive the man, but he was ultimately pronounced deceased.

The siblings are from the Ogden area.
