Press Release – Backcountry Rescue

On Sunday, July 3, 2022, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a backcountry technical rescue crash approximately six and a half miles out Slaughterhouse Canyon, east of Bellevue, Idaho.

Due to the location of the crash up a steep hillside on the ridge line, deputies were not able to access the crash with their patrol vehicles or utility terrain vehicles (UTV). Using all-terrain vehicles (ATV) deputies reached the ridge top to assist Wood River Fire and Rescue and Air St. Lukes with the rescue.Rescue 1

The crash scene investigation determined that two individuals were attempting to drive a 1997 Black Land Rover Defender up a steep trail with a substantial side hill and lost control when the front passenger wheel went over an embankment leaving the vehicle teetering on two wheels.

Air St. Lukes was able to land on the ridge approximately 200 yards from the crash. Jonathan Michael Myers, age 52 of Ketchum, and Michael Hamilton Myers, age 81 of Bellevue, were both transported by air ambulance for medical treatment.

No charges have been filed.
