FARMINGTON — A woman was hospitalized with back and hip injuries after  a vehicle rolled on top of her near the top of Farmington Canyon and dragged her down the mountain Monday evening.

The accident happened at about 5 p.m. when a pickup truck got stuck about half a mile north of the Francis Peak towers, according to Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen.

The canyon road was closed, helicopters were called to the scene and a command center was set up at Farmington Pond.

A second pickup tried to pull the first pickup out, and one of the vehicles rolled on top of the 41-year-old woman, who was apparently standing too closely, Poulsen said.

“It dragged her down the mountain a bit,” Poulsen said.

The driver of the stuck pickup was cited for failure to maintain control.
