Employee Seriously Injured In Fall

Glacier National Park

National Park News

A park employee was seriously injured in a fall on Tuesday. A veteran member of the park’s trail crew, the 31-year-old woman was working with other crew members on sections of the popular Highline Trail.  The incident occurred as the crew was returning to the Logan Pass trailhead. Park dispatch received a call from another member of the trail crew around 2:30 p.m., reporting that she’d taken a 200-foot slide down the snow from the trail to the Going-to-the-Sun Road, hitting the road’s surface. Three Rivers Ambulance and an A.L.E.R.T. air ambulance were dispatched to the park as rangers stabilized her for transport to a medical facility. Emergency responders encountered rain, wind and limited visibility. She was flown by A.L.E.R.T. to Kalispell Regional Medical Center. Her condition was not known at the time of the report.
