Two people died Sunday in an ATV wreck near the San Rafael Swell in Emery County, officials said.

The people, who were not immediately identified, had been riding in the San Rafael Desert, according to the Emery County Sheriff’s Office. The office declined to release any information beyond the “bare necessities” out of respect for the family of the deceased.

Two medical helicopters responded to the scene after the crash, officials said, and flew two other people to a local hospital.

No further information was immediately available.
