Matthews did not have information about the identity or condition of the vehicle’s driver or how the accident occurred. He added that the accident happened in an area of low cellphone coverage, which was making it difficult to gather information.

According to Matthews, Middle Canyon is a wide area with a paved road. It is popular for camping and has several trails for all-terrain vehicles.
