ORANGEVILLE, Utah (AP) - A woman has died after her all-terrain vehicle rolled down a hill in Utah.

Emery County Sheriff’s Office says the 65-year-old woman hit a curve while going about 20 mph down a steep grade in Cottonwood Canyon on Monday. The ATV then flipped and rolled on her, causing fatal head injuries.

Authorities say woman’s husband, who was traveling behind her, went to assist her and pair of people stopped to help about 10 minutes later. A woman stayed with the victim’s husband while a man traveled down the canyon until he had cell phone service and called for help.

He called about 30 minutes after the accident. The woman died at the scene.

She was not wearing a helmet.

Her identity has not yet been released.
