The Iron County Sheriff’s Office got the call around 8:40 p.m. Friday night.

However, the caller wasn’t able to provide a clear location.

They said there was a crash with a female under the water. 

Many agencies responded to help find the crash site.

Around 10:00 p.m. Friday, a passerby found the crash on Trail 13 in the Town of

Emergency workers found a UTV off the trail and partially submerged.
