LEHI — A paragliding accident sent one person to the hospital Sunday morning.
The incident happened in the area of 9600 W. Airpark Road in Utah County around 10:24 a.m. Sgt. Spencer Cannon, with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, says the victim is a male in his mid 20s.
Additionally, Cannon says LifeFlight was canceled, and the victim was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital. As such, Cannon says the injuries are likely non-life-threatening.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
