(Gallatin County, Mont.) Tuesday at 3:00 PM Gallatin 911 received a report of a 54 year old Belgrade man with a dislocated hip near Skinner Road North of Belgrade. He had been riding a four wheeler when the injury occurred. The reporting party told dispatch that they did not believe anyone would be able to drive to their location so Sheriff’s Search and Rescue was dispatched with Central Valley Fire. The fire department was the first on scene and was able to get to the patient with the help of the reporting party’s vehicle. Life Flight Medical helicopter was dispatched and landed near the patient. Search and Rescue volunteers used four wheelers to get to the patient and helped move him to the helicopter.
Sheriff Brian Gootkin would like to remind everyone to four-wheel, snowmobile and recreate with a partner.
