Jeep in River Driver to be Cited

Posted: Updated:
NEAR LAUREL -

The driver of the jeep that went into the Yellowstone River this weekend is expected to be cited. Game warden, Kevin Holland, with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks says the investigation is still ongoing but that the driver will receive a ticket for violating department rules and regulations.

Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder says on Sunday just after 6-30pm they received a call about a jeep in the river at the end of Sportsmen Park Road near Laurel. In that area, Holland says, vehicles are not allowed past the parking lot unless they're putting a boat in the river or pulling one out.

Four people were in the jeep at the time and were able to get out. Three had to be rescued off an island in the Yellowstone by deputies.
