Powder Mountain is home to a high-flying motorcross event in northern Utah. Racers flock here from all over Utah, Arizona, Idaho and several other states. It is in a beautiful location in the Rocky Mountains.
However, Thursday morning brought tragedy to the event. Dylan Perkins, 16, from Surprise, Arizona suffered a fatal accident while practicing at the 3-day Powder Mountain Motorcross. Perkins lost control going over a jump according to Sgt. Ryon Hadley of the Weber County Sherriff????????s office.
Perkins landed a jump on his rear wheel which caused him to bounce and flip. He suffered head, back and internal injuries. He was taken to an Ogden Hospital where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.
