According to Park City Police Capt. Phil Kirk, the woman was discovered on Fox Tail Trail by several other mountain bikers who began administering aid and called 911 reporting serious injuries.

"We responded as quickly as we could," Kirk said, noting that the distance from the road to the location of the incident was in between a quarter and half a mile. The trail connects to Solamere Drive near Prospector Park.

The captain said the department had yet to notify the victim's family and had not yet released her name. He noted that the investigation was still active but said preliminary findings indicate she was biking alone and wearing a helmet when the accident occurred.
