Accident Sends Two To Hospital

August 15, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
car crash

The collision of three vehicles yesterday morning left two people injured and snarled traffic north of Jackson for over a half hour.  According to Grand Teton National Park officials, a northbound vehicle driven by 71-year-old Frederick Kayne of Marco Island, Florida veered into the southbound lane, striking a pop-up camper pulled by an SUV.  A second southbound vehicle swerved to the right and into the sagebrush alongside the road to avoid hitting the original vehicle as it was still crossing the southbound lane.  That car too was struck by Kayne’s vehicle.  The two southbound cars were driven by a father and son from Utah who were wrapping up a family vacation in Grand Teton National Park.  Three ambulances, one fire engine and additional personnel and apparatus from Jackson Hole Fire/EMS, multiple park rangers and a park ambulance all responded to the accident.  Park officials say Kayne and a passenger in the second southbound vehicle, Kevin Berry, were transported to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment.  Park Rangers assisted by the Wyoming Highway Patrol are still investigating the accident, but neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to have been a factor in the crash.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
