TOQUERVILLE, Utah — Two people were hurt Wednesday in a motorized-glider accident near Toquerville.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, a father and son were riding in a motorized machine with a parachute that had a propeller in the back. 

Authorities say they were too close to telephone lines. When the two individuals realized how close they were, it was too late and ended up crashing.

The machine ended up catching on fire. Fortunately, the father and son were able to get out of the machine and put the fire out with sand and shovels.

Authorities say both suffered minor injuries. The father had injuries to his leg, while the son suffered some minor burns. 

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office say the family is handling the removal of the machine.
