A snag fell and injured Steven R. Griffin, a 53-year-old man from Troy, Idaho, on Loop Road in Elk River on Monday, Feb. 4.

The Clearwater County Sheriff’s Office, Clearwater County Ambulance and Life Flight responded to the logging accident. Two Bear Air from Montana also responded as reports indicated Griffin, who works for Dave Henderson Logging out of Deary, would need to be hoisted out of the accident scene. However, the ambulance and Life Flight crew were able to retrieve Griffin without Two Bear Air’s hoist.
