Rally driver, Park City local Ken Block killed in snowmobile accident

Park City local, professional rally car driver and co-founder of DC Shoes Ken Block died after a snowmobile accident Monday afternoon.

The Wasatch County Sheriff's Office said Block was riding with a group in the Mill Hollow area but alone on a steep slope when his snowmobile upended and landed on him.

He was 55 years old.

Block is survived by his wife and three children, one of whom is also a driver.
