Driving too fast causes crash
August 1, 2017
By Michael Meier
Boundary County Public Information Officer

Today at around 3:30 p.m. the Boundary County Sheriff’s Office responded to an accident located at the Mountain Meadows Road/Highway 95 slide reduced speed area.

A northbound vehicle from Libby, Montana, was traveling too fast and lost control, striking the concrete retaining wall and then crossing over the center dividers, striking a camp trailer being towed southbound from Alberta before continuing down off the roadway into the timber below.

The family from Alberta was not injured, and the driver of the car from Montana suffered only minor injuries. Seat belts and airbags helped everyone from sustaining more severe injuries.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone to please buckle up when driving and use caution through the reduced speed area of the Mountain Meadows/Highway 95 slide area.
