SAN RAFAEL SWELL, Emery County — Two people were killed Sunday in an ATV accident, sheriff's officials reported Monday.

Two people were killed in an accident Sunday afternoon in the San Rafael Desert, according to a brief news release from the Emery County's Sheriff's Office. Two medical helicopters responded to the scene and aided two additional patients.

"(Sunday) we did have a tragic accident, and the families requested we not put out any more information," Emery County Sheriff Greg Funk said. "They asked that nothing be done. There's a certain extent that we have to put out and we will put out the bare necessities."
