A medical helicopter rushed a 32-year-old man to a Valley hospital after he lost control of his quad on Christmas Day near Star Valley.
Injured after getting thrown from his quad, Edward Tosh II used his cell phone to call his father, Edward Tosh Sr., just after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday complaining of multiple injuries.
The father called the Gila County Sheriff’s Office, but didn’t know where exactly his son lay injured. He only knew he was somewhere on the east side of Star Valley, near Mayfield Canyon, where people frequently ride, said Lt. Tim Scott with the GCSO.
Sgt. John France located Tosh Jr. in a field area roughly one mile from Highway 260 and placed a medical helicopter on standby.
Officers learned Tosh Jr. had sped up to go over an incline, became airborne and ended up coming down into and over the handlebars. He was flown to Scottsdale Osborn Hospital for treatment.
