OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK: Man wheeled out after fall from horse


A 50-year-old man was injured Monday when he was thrown from a horse on Little River Trail in Olympic National Park.

Park officials received a 911 call at about 4 p.m., spokeswoman Barb Maynes said. The man was 2 miles from the nearest road when he was thrown, Maynes said. The horse also fell on him.

The man, whose name and hometown were not available, suffered chest injuries, she said.

Park rangers were using a wheeled litter to cart the man out late Monday. They expected to have him to the trailhead by 10 p.m.

“The going on the trail is very difficult,”‘ Maynes said. “With the rain it’s very slippery, very muddy.”
