Brian Head, UT (February 25, 2021) – One woman died and two other people sustained injuries injured on Tuesday, February 23rd in a snowmobiling accident in the area of Navajo Ridge near Brian Head.
Sources show that at about 4:00 p.m., the two marshals and an off-duty police officer from California responded to the scene of the accident and administered CPR. In spite of the life-saving measures, one victim was unable to be revived.
A man who also sustained injuries during the accident was transported to Cedar City Hospital. His condition was reported as critical but stable.
The woman has since been identified as 65-year-old Keiko Baldwin. The injured male was her husband, John Baldwin, who remains in critical condition as he undergoes multiple surgeries.
One other woman involved in the crash was also transported to Cedar City Hospital with unspecified injuries.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Keiko Baldwin, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
More than 180 Utah snowmobile accidents were reported in the winter of 2016-2017. These accidents involved 225 snowmobile operators, left 127 victims seriously injured and resulted in the deaths of 24. Dangerously high speeds have routinely been the leading cause behind these accidents.
Officials have reported that, as far as OHVs such as snowmobiles are concerned, speeding does not necessarily imply that a posted speed limit was exceeded, but rather that the operator of an OHV was driving at a speed that was too high for prevailing trail or road conditions. Driver inexperience was also a major contributing factor.
