MOAB, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a 63-year-old South Dakota woman has died after an all-terrain vehicle rolled over her on a popular Utah desert trail.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office says Karen Johnson, 63, from Millbank, S.D. died Monday at an eastern Utah hospital.

Johnson was riding the Hell’s Revenge Trail east of Moab on Monday afternoon and was trying to climb an obstacle on the trail when her ATV rolled on top of her.

She was airlifted to Moab Regional Hospital where she died from her injuries.

The sheriff’s office says she was in a private group and not on a commercial ATV tour.

Authorities say she was not wearing a helmet.
