PERRY — A male driving along State Road 89 near 3600 South rolled his SUV into a peach orchard Sunday afternoon.

Around 4 p.m. a 31-year-old male was driving south with a passenger when their Chevy Tahoe rolled over, hitting three peach trees, according to Brigham City Fire Capt. Shawn Howard.

“They’re lucky,” said orchard owner, Ken Grenko, who added that the accident could have ended far much worse than the loss of three trees.

Both occupants were transported by ground to Brigham City Community Hospital with minor injuries.

Grenko bought the 5-acre property in 1996. “It’s only three, maybe four, mature trees with no life,” he said. “Trees can be replanted.” 

His wife, Sherry Grenko, stood nearby. “It’s just trees,” she said.

The cause of the accident is under investigation by Perry Police.
