OAKLEY, Utah (AP) — Crews rescued a woman hiking on a Utah mountain trail after she was injured by a falling boulder.
Summit County Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright says the boulder hit the 70-year-old woman Monday while she was nearing Hayden Peak on the Highline Trail.
Her friends found an area with cellphone service and called for help.
A helicopter hoisted the woman from the trail and an ambulance took her to a hospital.
Wright says the woman possibly broke a femur and had injuries to her arm and head.
The trail is about 60 miles east of Oakley.
