MOAB, Utah — Ludo Michaud heard a loud noise. Then the car carrying him and his wife stopped.
Michaud and his wife, Esther Nakajjigo, were in Arches National Park. When he looked to his wife in the passenger seat, he saw what he calls, “the worst thing I hope I will ever see.”
Wind caught an unlatched traffic gate and turned it into the path of Michaud and Nakajjigo’s rented Chevy Malibu. The gate pierced the car, decapitating Nakajjigo. She was 25.
