Default WHOOPS! Mountain biker seriously injured in crash taken by airambulance to Boise hospital

Mountain biker seriously injured in crash taken by air ambulance to Boise hospital

Published: September 9, 2012

Ada County emergency personnel were dispatched at 1:06 p.m. Sunday to aid an injured mountain biker who crashed on a trail in the northwest Boise Foothills, off of Bogus Basin Road. The bicyclist's friend called 911 for help, an Ada County dispatcher said.

Boise firefighters and Ada County paramedics used ATVs to search for the bicyclist, who had been riding on a trail known as Hardguy. He was found in a remote location of the Dry Creek drainage where the terrain was difficult, and emergency responders could not reach him.

An air ambulance was able to land near the cyclist, who was lying in water and reportedly unable to move. His injuries are serious but not considered life-threatening.

The man was loaded into the helicopter at about 3 p.m. and taken to a Boise hospital. No other information was immediately available Sunday afternoon.
