According to a press release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of the 2015 Polaris RZR involved in the incident was 51-year-old James David Pierce from Central, Utah. Witnesses at the scene say Pierce lost control while turning a corner and rolled the vehicle. The incident occurred at approximately 1:07 p.m., and Washington County deputies, the Enterprise Fire Department and Intermountain Life Flight helicopter responded.

The initial information received by the Sheriff’s office said that at least one person was pinned underneath the vehicle. Life Flight transported a James Pierce’s 26-year-old son, Trevor Pierce, to Dixie Regional Medical Center for reportedly serious injuries. Washington County Deputy Graham Hancock told St.

George News that Trevor Pierce received L4 and L5 lower lumbar fractures to his back and underwent surgery. The third passenger reported no injuries, Hancock said. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but according to the press release, deputies suspect that it was alcohol-related, and following a medical clearance, Pierce was booked into Purgatory Correctional Facility for driving under the influence and causing serious bodily injury.

Natasha Blakely Battle Creek Enquirer Published 9:11 p.m. UTC Jun 15, 2018

After a slightly delay past the project May opening date, the BC Cargo pop-up stores are finally ready.

The stores will be having their soft opening on Saturday, June 16. The stores are part of a pilot program started by the city’s Small Business Development Office to give startup businesses a softer entry into the downtown market. The program is meant to lower barriers for small businesses by lessening startup costs and offering a way to test the market.

The eventual goal is for the participating stores to transition to a more permanent location in Battle Creek. There are seven stores selling a range of products, from clothing and Battle Creek-centric souvenirs to cold-pressed coffee. More:
