Detective Kevin Orr sustained fatal injuries when the helicopter he was riding in crashed into the Green River.

He was participating in a search for a missing woman whose burned-out car had been found several days earlier.

The helicopter struck a power line that was hanging across the river and then crashed into the water several feet from shore. Detective Orr was transported to LDS Hospital where he died a short time later. The civilian pilot suffered non-fatal injuries.

Detective Orr had served with the Uintah County Sheriff's Office for 11 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

It has been an emotionally exhausting day. I have physically had to
do so many things alone. It is always extra hard when I’m in the same hospital emergency room that you were taken too. I hate feeling so alone. So many emotions came back today. 11 years later and it felt like yesterday. But then the sign came that you were there. Thank you for watching over our little girl. Thank you for never leaving us. I love you always and always will.
