A West Jordan cyclist suffered a serious head injury trying to bike through a dark tunnel in Zion National Park.
A group of 12 people had arranged for a shuttle to take them through the narrow, unlit Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel Friday afternoon, but eight of them decided to ride through instead, according to a park news release. That was when a 51-year-old West Jordan man and another cyclist apparently hit the tunnel wall and crashed.
The West Jordan man hit his head and was taken to the hospital with significant head trauma, while the second person only tore his shirt and refused any medical treatment. The injured man's condition on Saturday was not immediately available.
