Situation Report: Rollover on Karr Canyon Road

At 5:10pm, High Rolls Fire and EMS was dispatched to an MVA Rollover about 1 and 1/2 miles up Karr Canyon Road from Highway 82. First arriving units found a single passenger vehicle approximately 30 feet down the side of the canyon. One occupant was found, who appeared uninjured and was not transported by EMS. The vehicle was in difficult and very steep terrain, causing a delay in recovery operations. As a result Karr Canyon Road was closed for about 2 hours as the recovery vehicles performed their operations in order for the road to be cleared.
