Two People Airlifted Out of Yellowstone After Serious Crash on Dunraven Pass

Two people have been airlifted out of Yellowstone National Park after a serious crash in the Dunraven Pass Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, the pair in question (an adult and a 10-year-old boy) were separately transported via air ambulance after their car veered 50 feet down a slope in Dunraven.

According to park spokesman Jonathan Shafer, three other people were in the car; they sustained “lesser injuries” and were transported by ground ambulance.

There is no word on the condition of either the adult or child airlifted.

The car has been towed, according to the Chronicle.

Traffic was briefly halted along the Grand Loop Road in the Dunraven area, although traffic is reportedly still down to one lane alternating as of this afternoon.
