Truck rollover on Sand Canyon Road could have been much worse…
Some area youth are very thankful to be in good condition after their truck flipped over and two people were ejected from the vehicle two weeks ago on Sand Canyon Road.
Two of the teens – Maddy Triplett had to take a trip to the dentist for some teeth work, and Sam Triplett has a neck brace because of whiplash — are recovering from the wreck while Dennis Bice walked away with just cuts and bruises.
Two Lifeflight helicopters were called in as Triplett was airlifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center, and Sam was also lifted to the same hospital after being checked out at St. Joseph’s in Chewelah. Both were examined for internal bleeding and were released.
