A 40-year-old man was injured Sunday after crashing his mountain bike in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Unified police Detective Jared Richardson said the man was biking in the Desolation Lake Trail area when he crashed, injuring his leg.

A passerby spotted him about 11 a.m. and called for help.

Richardson said a medical helicopter had reached the man about noon, was treating his injury and would bring him off the mountain.
