COALVILLE -- Sheriff's officials say a man struck by lightning while hiking near Amethyst Lake is in critical condition.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office says the man was hit during a hike Saturday at about 5 p.m. The Deseret News reports that the man was not identified.

Amethyst is about a day hike from Christmas Meadows.

Last week, a 24-year-old man and his dog were killed after being struck by lightning during a fishing trip on a lake on Boulder Mountain.
