September 24, 2015 I The Lovell Chronicle I 5 COURTESY PHOTO Two crash victims were seriously injured during a rollover crash of a pickup truck driven by an unlicensed driver on a dirt road off of Highway 37 near Horseshoe Bend on Sunday afternoon. II BY PATrl CARPENTER Two crash victims were transported to the hospital following a rollover crash of a pickup truck driven by an unlicensed driver on a dirt road off of Highway 37 near Horseshoe Bend on Sunday afternoon. Sheriffs deputies, the Lovell Fire Department and an ambulance from North Big Horn Hospi- tal responded to a call re- porting a rollover crash at around 2:30 p.m. Upon ar- rival deputies found a bad- ly wrecked Ford pickup truck owned by 18-year-old Cody Fausett of Greybull. An injured girl was found near the vehicle, appearing to have been ejected during the crash. Though the sheriffs of- fice declined to release the name of the .girl, citing that she is a minor, the Lovell Chronicle learned from oth- er sources that the girl is 14-year-old Alexis Lujan, a freshman at Lovell High School. According to Sher- iff Ken Blackburn, the girl was taken by medical heli- copter to a hospital in Bill- ings due to serious inju- ries sustained in the crash. Fausett was transported by ground to North Big Horn Hospital. Blackburn said both appeared to have very serious injuries. Lujan had facial injuries, including what appeared to be miss- ing teeth. Two other individuals, Jesse Pine, 18, and anoth- er male, 17, were with the pair at the time, traveling on the same dirt road in a separate vehicle. Initially, Fausett and the two young men from the other vehi- cle told investigating depu- ties that the wrecked vehi- cle was driven by Fausett, but later changed their sto- ry admitting Lujan, an un- licensed driver, was at the wheel during the crash. "At first they tried to lie about who was driving," said Blackburn. "When evi- dence at the scene indicat- ed otherwise, they admit- ted the girl was driving." Blackburn expressed concern that the boys lied and said all three world be charged with interfereace. "Young people need to understand that we will have zero tolerance for in- terfering with the investi- gation of a serious accident like this," said Blackburn. Blackburn noted that it was barely a year ago that a young girl was killed in a crash under very sim- ilar circumstances near Burlington. "I find it very disturb- ing that this 14-year-old girl was out there with three older boys driving like that," said Blackburn. "Driving on a dirt road can be very tricky for an inex- perienced driver. It's eerie how similar this was to the accident that took the life of a girl near Burlington a year ago. The circumstanc- es were almost identical and that girl lost her life. I think this girl is very lucky to have survived this." He said the Lujan will be charged with driving without a license and Fau- sett will be charged for al- lowing an unlicensed driver behind the wheel. "We want kids to have fun, but we also want them to be safe," said Blackburn. "We want them to enjoy themselves, but we want them to enjoy life, too. "It takes a certain skill set to drive on dirt roads. Obviously she didn't have those skills and overcorrect- ed and lost control. It's like driving a 4,000-pound bul- let. You have to know what you're doing and there are ways to learn that safely." From Our Files Loretta Bischoff Outstanding Young Woman 100 Years Ago, Sept. 24, 1915 The Cowley Weekly Progress Editorial: Nothing in the way of public im- provement was ever at- tempted in any communi- ty but there were a bunch of knockers to try to belit- tle the efforts of those who have the moral stamina to stand up for the town's progress. But in the end the booster prevails. It will be so with the proposed light plant. IT WILL BE INSTALLED tho' all hell conspires against it and don't you forget it. 75 Years Ago, Sept. 26, 1940 The Lovell Chronicle First benefits of the new oiled streets are be- coming noticeable with the fall rains. Less mud is car- ried onto the Main Street from the side streets and less absence of dust. At the start of beet harvest next week trucks will be re- quired to use the first street north of Main Street, and freight and transport vans will also be shunted to that street on their noisy trip through town. 50 Years Ago, Sept. 23, 1965 The Lovell Chronicle Miss Loretta Bischoff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hy Bischoff, has been se- lected to appear in the 1966 edition of Outstanding Young Women of America. Guidelines for selection are unselfish service to others, charitable activities, com- munity service, profession- al excellence, business ad- vancement and civic and professional recognition. 25 Years Ago, Sept. 20, 1990 The Lovell Chronicle Deacon John Aloi- sio and his wife Marlene are bringing something new to St. Joseph's Cath- olic Church in Lovell. He is the first deacon to head the church here and is one of only two deacons in Wy- oming. Aloisio said, "My appointment reflects the changing nature of the ad- ministration of the Catho- lic community in Wyoming. There is a far greater em- phasis on the full partici- pation of each member of the community, not only in worship, charity and com- munity action but in the management of the long term and daily goals." His official title is Reverend Mr. John Aloisio, but he is called Deacon John. ig Horn County Long Range Forecast Thursday Sunny Precip Chance: 0% Friday Sunny Precip Chance: 0% 88 / 53 83 / 50 Saturday Mostly Sunny Preclp Chance: 5% 87 / 52 Sunday Mostly Sunny Precip Chance: 5% 78 / 50 Monday Mostly Sunny Preclp Chance: 5% 75 / 49 I WEATHER JOURNAL Big Horn County Forecast sponsored by [Sept, 9 78 47 O0 s /s t.to78 46 oo [,Sept, 11 84 44 O0 ~rSt B~ [Sept. 13 86 53 O0 | Big t~'n kal~ ~1:&b~.9 & L ere YOU are FIRST!
