2 dead after plane crashes near Powder Mountain

EDEN — Two men died after the single-engine plane they were in crashed just south of Powder Mountain Saturday morning, Weber Fire District officials said.

Emergency crews responded to a report of a plane crash in the area of 7739 E. Horizon Run Road shortly after 10 a.m. They arrived at the scene to find one man already deceased while another man was alive with extensive second and third-degree burns, said Weber Fire Deputy Chief Marshal David Reed.

The man who survived the crash was transported by medical helicopter to a burn center at the University of Utah in extremely critical condition. He later died from his injuries, Weber County sheriff’s officials said Saturday night.

The names and ages of the men were not released Saturday.

Fire crews were able to contain a small fire also started by the crash, according to Reed. Fire officials said Weber County Sheriff’s deputies and Ogden City Fire officials assisted in the response to the scene.

Powder Mountain Resort said the Paper Airplane Trail, Baggage Claim Trail, Brim Trail parking area and Lefty’s Canyon area will be closed until Monday, May 31 while an investigation is conducted.

The crash remains under investigation.
