2 injured in near head-on crash involving SUV, skid loader near Scenic Pit in Richfield

RICHFIELD -- Two people were hurt when an SUV and a skid loader collided in a near head-on crash in front of Scenic Pit in Richfield Wednesday afternoon, June 3.

Scenic Pit is a former quarry that accepts clean fill from construction companies. The trucks bringing the fill leave dirt on the roadway, and the pit is responsible for cleaning up the roadway, so that is why the skid loader with a brush attachment in front was on the roadway.
