UPDATE: Child dies after being pinned by snowmobile trailer

LOGAN — An eight-year-old has died after being severely injured Monday morning while playing on a snowmobile trailer.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said the child was pronounced dead at a Salt Lake area hospital shortly after 12:30 p.m.

Emergency crews were called to a home in Lewiston at 370 Cannibal Rd, just before 10 a.m. Monday.

The child was apparently climbing on the trailer ramp when it came loose and fell, pinning the child to the ground.

Paramedics transported the child by ambulance to Cache Valley Hospital in critical condition. The child was later flown by medical helicopter to the Salt Lake area hospital.

Peterson said it appears to be a tragic accident and no criminal charges are being considered.

The child’s identity has not been released, pending notification of family.
