Default WHOOPS! Mountain biker severely injured his leg and hip

I thought that graduate students are supposed to be intelligent. Silly me.



Mountain biker rescued near Triple Tree

An injured mountain biker was rescued by the Gallatin County Sheriff's Search and Rescue volunteers after crashing south of the Triple Tree subdivision.

The 30-year-old male graduate student from MSU was biking with his father when he crashed and severely injured his leg and hip. Within an hour, rescuers were able to reach him and move him out of the hills using a wheeled liter.

Several other bikers came upon the crash including a local doctor and were able to make the call for help and provide him with extra clothing to stay warm.

It was the second time today that volunteers have responded to assist injured people. Earlier, a Belgrade woman had to be helped off the "M" trail after hurting her ankle.
