A Park Ranger is crushed on the George Price Highway

A Chukka Tours bus ran over a Park Ranger this morning at the Nohoch Che’en National Park, located at the Caves Branch Outpost off the George Price Highway. Eyewitnesses told News Five that the Ranger, identified only as Jeremy, was manning the checkpoint at the entrance to the Park when he was run over by the bus. One witness, Lincoln Gordon, told us the bus actually ran over the body of Jeremy and dragged him about seven yards. Gordon was the one who pulled Jeremy from under the bus and transported him to the Western Regional Hospital. He told us that the Ranger was delirious at the time. According to those on the scene, the driver of the bus which contained thirty-two tourists claimed that as he approached the barrier his brakes failed and he could not stop. At news time we have confirmed that Jeremy is suffering from severe lower body injuries, a broken arm and internal bleeding. He was transferred to the K.H.M.H. for treatment this evening. We’ll have more on this story on Friday’s newscast.
