employee injured in atv accident


About 10 a.m. (PDT) Thursday, May 2, Idaho Fish and Game employee Mark Parks, 57, of Lewiston, was injured in an ATV accident along the lower Salmon River below Eagle Creek.

Parks was working by himself spraying weeds with an ATV-mounted tank sprayer when the ATV rolled over on him. He used his emergency satellite transmitter to call for help.

The Fish and Game office in Lewiston called the Lewiston area medical evacuation helicopter, based at St. Joseph's Regional Medical center, to respond. Parks was transported to Lewiston and eventually flown to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center Hospital in Spokane for treatment of multiple broken bones.

Parks remains hospitalized in stable condition.
