The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said Eulice Melton Evans was fatally injured in the crash of the ultralight trike he was operating on Saturday.

Spokeswoman Patricia Carter said a neighbor called the sheriff’s office at 6:42 a.m. to report that he watched the ultralight trike take off and then crash in the desert about a quarter-mile from his home in Golden Valley. Evans was pronounced dead at the scene.

Carter said the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration were notified of the incident.
