Church Outing Marred By Car Crash

ISP

A Chevy Suburban, driven by Holly Galbraith of Jackson and carrying seven passengers slid off Pine Creek Pass Saturday, crashing through a guardrail and coming to rest 125 feet down an embankment in Pine Creek. The crash resulted in multiple injuries. Two of the passengers were transported to EIRMC by air ambulance and the remaining occupants were transported to EIRMC by ground ambulance. One of the eight was then flown to a hospital in Utah. According to an ISP news release, the occupants were recovered from the Suburban by rope rescue teams from Bonneville County Search and Rescue, Swan Valley Fire Department, Jefferson County Fire/QRU/Search and Rescue, and Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office. A witness to the crash also rendered first aid until first responders arrived on scene. Idaho State Police say Galbraith’s car was southbound at about milepost 5.6 when she lost control of the Suburban on the snow covered road. Identities of Galbraith’s seven passengers were not immediately available. The group was reportedly enroute to a church function in Idaho.
