A Weber County man was injured and had to be helped off the mountain above Perry Monday night by a fire truck, after he rolled a borrowed ATV.

The call came in about 7 p.m., from a third party caller who said his brother-in-law had crashed on an ATV somewhere between Perry Canyon and White Rock, according to Park Ranger Mert Russo.   A later call from the victim gave searchers GPS coordinates to help locate the man.

Perry and Willard EMTs, Brigham City Ambulance and State Parks and Recreation personnel, along with Search and Rescue were also contacted and joined in the search.  The man was finally located about 9 p.m., below White Rock.  It took nearly an hour to bring him down and he was then transported by a waiting ambulance to Brigham City Community Hospital.

Russo said the man, who was riding alone in unfamiliar territory, was not wearing a helmet when the ATV rolled backward on the steep incline.  She stressed the importance of riding with a buddy, knowing the area of travel and always wearing a helmet.
