Injured Snowmobiler Rescued Near West Yellowstone

Posted: Updated:
WEST YELLOWSTONE - Wednesday, the Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue in West Yellowstone and Forest Service Personnel responded to a report of an injured snowmobiler. A 30-year-old female from Seattle, Washington had suffered possible leg and abdominal injuries after the snowmobile she was riding left the trail on a corner and struck a tree.

Rescuers responded on snowmobiles and located the injured snowmobiler on the Two Top trail.

The injured snowmobiler was quickly packaged onto a rescue sled and transported to West Yellowstone where she was loaded into an awaiting Hebgen Basin Fire Department ambulance. The ambulance then transported her to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital for an evaluation.

Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin reminds everyone that the key to safe snowmobile operation is knowing the machine, knowing your limitations, using good judgment and carrying the proper equipment. Gootkin says your speed should allow you to safely respond to sudden maneuvers by other snowmobilers and changing trail conditions.
