Emery County Sheriff's Office Dispatch received a call at 3:10 p.m. on Sunday, May 25, reporting an ATV accident on the San Rafael Desert. Location of the accident was at the far west end of Eagle Canyon east of the town of Moore.

Killed in the accident were 70 year-old Hubert Roger Issel and his 64 year-old wife Alana Lea Issel of American Fork. Two of their grandchildren, ages 7 and 8, were critically injured in the accident and were transported by medical helicopters.

From investigation of the accident scene, it appears the Can-Am side-by-side driven by Hubert Issel was traveling on an established trail when it came to a steep rocky ledge in the trail. This caused the vehicle to roll down the trail and then off a cliff approximately 80-100 feet to the canyon floor.

A DPS helicopter will be on scene Tuesday to recover the side-by-side.
