A 41-year-old man is dead after a snowmobile crash on Saturday afternoon in Iron County.

The Iron County Sheriff's Office says at approximately 2:30 Saturday afternoon they received a report of a snowmobile crash on trail 14 off of Game Management Road in the town of Knight.

The sheriff's office also received a report of an "unresponsive male" at the scene. Lifesaving efforts were attempted by people on scene.

Deputies and rescue personnel continued the lifesaving efforts when they arrived, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Iron County Sheriff's Office says it appears as though the lead sled in a group veered off the trail, and struck several trees. There were no other units involved.

The man's identity is being withheld pending family notification.

The crash remains under investigation.
