WEST GLACIER, MONT. –Officials at Glacier National Park report that five park visitors were injured today in two separate incidents.

A male hiker was rescued by park personnel near Lunch Creek (between Siyeh Bend and Logan Pass.) The victim apparently tumbled 20 yards down a talus slope after sliding down a snowfield. After being stabilized by park personnel, rangers prepared him for transport by the air ambulance ALERT to Kalispell Regional Medical Center. His injuries are believed to be non life-threatening.

Four visitors were injured in a two-car accident near Two Dog Flats, near Rising Sun on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The four were transported by ground ambulance to Browning. It is believed that all four visitors sustained non life-threatening injuries.

As details become available, more information will be provided.
