On August 13th, 2014 at 2204 DCSO responded to an accident at the County Fairgrounds outdoor arena. 41 Year old Male Hooper Resident, Bren Ewing, was involved in an accident while acting as a safety team member for Intrepid Motorsports. The accident is still under investigation, but preliminary information leads investigators to believe the victim was checking on a disabled vehicle when the vehicle shifted weight and settled on top of the victim. Responding officers were able to free the victim from the wreckage and he was treated and flown via Life Flight to McKay Dee Hospital. DCSO was notified the victim died as a result of his injuries.
UPDATE: Farmington Police Department will be handling the investigation from this point forward.
