SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Wasatch County, Utah search and rescue crews are issuing a warning that may seem obvious to most: "Your car is not a snowmobile." One driver Friday had to learn that lesson the hard way.
At 5:09 p.m., crews with Wasatch County Search & Rescue responded to a call of a driver stranded in his car on a snowmobile trail over Wolf Creek Pass.
Some snowmobilers on the trail discovered the driver sitting inside of the stuck vehicle and they alerted emergency crews.
It took those crews three-and-a-half hours to evacuate the driver safely to the Duchesne side of the pass.
In a Facebook post, Wasatch County Search & Rescue explained the story, then offered a few nuggets of wisdom:
Search and rescue (SAR) can not help tow your car out of the snow."
Most roads like this do not have cell coverage for emergencies."
Your car will not go over snow like a snowmobile."
