TOOELE COUNTY, Utah – Miranda Anderson was in Middle Canyon riding on an ATV with her family when the driver crashed. The deadly accident happened on Mother’s Day.
Jeff Shuemaker says something compelled him to drive up the canyon on Sunday. He said when he turned his car around at the gates, he saw a man with a little girl in his arms, yelling to stop.
“There was a father with a little girl; he said he needed help, his little girl wasn’t responding to him,” says Shuemaker.
Miranda Anderson was lifeless in her father’s arms.
“The little girl was in my car in her daddy’s arms.”
Shuemaker was driving along the road when he spotted them, five miles down Middle Canyon where the 7-year-old and her family spent Sunday afternoon ATV riding.
“I just said jump in the car and we went down the road until we got cell service in my phone and we called 911.”
