National Park News

A 21-year-old Phoenix man was involved in a skateboard accident on Forest Road 545 around 3:30 p.m. on May 3rd. Forest Road 545 is a paved, two lane road and is the main park road for both Sunset Crater Volcano NM and Wupatki NM.  The man’s friends brought him to the park visitor center, about ten minutes away, and asked for treatment for cuts, abrasions, and head wounds. Park staff provided initial treatment and summoned medical units. Summit Fire Department and Guardian ambulance and air ambulance responded. The man was flown by air ambulance to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he died three days later.
