(West Yellowstone, Mont) On Monday, January 4, at 11:47 a.m. the West Yellowstone Police Department Dispatch Center received a 911 call reporting a single snowmobile crash on the Two Top Trail, three miles west of West Yellowstone. Both occupants of the two-person snowmobile sustained knee, leg and hip injuries when the snowmobile they were riding left the trail and struck a tree.
Rescuers from Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue in West Yellowstone and Custer Gallatin National Forest Service responded and located two injured 22-year-old women. Both patients were quickly loaded into specialized rescue sleds and transported back to West Yellowstone, where they were treated by Hebgen Basin Rural Fire District EMS personnel. The two women were subsequently transported to Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg Idaho for further evaluation.
