The community of Huntington is mourning the death of the president of the Emery County Farm Bureau, who was killed on Nov. 21 after his pick-up truck rolled off a mountain road in Emery County.
Jordan Hatch, 46, was driving down Gentry Mountain in a one-ton Chevrolet outfitted with a cattle rack holding two horses in the bed of the truck. The terrain is treacherous and the road is "steep and very wash-boardy," according to a news release quoting Emery County Sheriff Greg Funk.
Hatch lost control of the truck, which rolled at least once down the road before going down a 150-foot embankment. Hatch, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the truck and suffered fatal injuries, Funk said. One of the horses died in the rollover as well.
