The Tooele County Sheriff's Office is awaiting results of blood tests before deciding whether to file charges against the driver in a fatal ATV accident over the weekend.
Tooele County spokesman Wade Matthews said Monday the 32-year-old driver of the four-wheel, all-terrain vehicle was heading downhill in Middle Canyon Sunday afternoon when his rig drifted off the right side of the road and into some trees. A 7-year-old girl, Miranda Anderson, was riding on the seat, in front of the driver.
A low-hanging branch punctured the girl's neck, tearing an artery. The girl's father, who was riding behind the ATV on his motorcycle, grabbed his daughter and rushed five miles down the canyon in order to get cell phone reception to call 911.
