Ranger Assists With Double Fatality Accident

Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area

National Park News

On August 25th, the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office contacted the park and asked for assistance in a fatal accident on Highway 313 about ten miles north of Fort Smith. Ranger Elizabeth Morin responded and found that the male driver and his female passenger had both been ejected from the vehicle. Two children who had also been in the vehicle received non-life-threatening injuries.  The woman was declared dead at the scene and Morin assisted with transporting the man to Hardin in the Big Horn County ambulance.  He was then taken to the hospital in Billings, where he died later in the day.  The two people who were died are related to employees of the Bureau of Reclamation who reside in Government Camp, a housing complex for NPS and BOR employees. The Montana Highway Patrol and Bureau of Indian Affairs Police are leading the investigation.
