ST. ANTHONY – Four people suffered injury at the Sand Dunes over the Labor Day weekend.
Fremont County Sheriff Len Humphries reported that the injured were transported to various hospitals via ambulance and Life Flight. It wasn’t known who the accident victims were, where they were from or the extent of their injuries.
“Life Flight was out there twice,” he said.
Humphries reported his officers were exceptionally busy during the Labor Day weekend.
“We had extra patrols both at the Sand Hills and at Island Park. We had extra volunteers helping us. We had a lot of people who worked over the weekend. It was very beneficial. People saw the increased presence, so that helped,” he said.
Over the weekend, Humphries noted that his officers received a lot of complaints about aggressive drivers. Despite that, no accidents were reported. Humphries said that at one point, southbound Labor Day traffic slowed down considerably.
“When everybody is going slow, it’s a lot safer. It’s just more frustrating (for drivers),” Humphries said.
