A Utah man was expected to recover after being injured over the weekend in a Colorado hunting accident.

The man, who friends said is from Centerville, was riding a four-wheeler about 9 a.m. Saturday about 20 miles northwest of Craig, Colo., when someone shot him in the arm, said Lt. K.C. Hume, with the Moffat County Sheriff's Office.

The man's two hunting companions took him to a Craig hospital for treatment. He was later flown to another hospital .

Hume said the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

He said the Utah man and his companions were wearing appropriate gear marking them as hunters, but it appeared that another group of hunters likely fired their guns without being aware of their surroundings.

Hume said investigators don't know who shot the man.
