Teton County Search and Rescue reports responding to an accident on Togwotee Pass Sunday where a 37-year-old Florida man had collided with a tree on his snowmobile.

Search and Rescue Chief Advisor Cody Lockhart says the unidentified man was short-hauled from the scene by the search and rescue helicopter, and then loaded inside the helicopter for a flight to St. John’s Health for treatment.

From there, he was life-flighted to Idaho Falls with severe head trauma. Lockhart says the accident occurred near Brooks Lake shortly after 2:00 pm.
