Snow Plow Tractor Fatality In Ketchum


On Thursday, Dec. 16, at approximately 4:52 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff deputies responded to a technical rescue with North Blaine County Fire Department and Ketchum Ambulance to a single-vehicle accident on Cold Springs Gulch Road in Ketchum.

Upon investigation, it was determined that Alex McDonald II, age 75, of Ketchum, was plowing snow on his driveway on a green John Deere 640 tractor with a plow attachment when the tractor came close to the edge of the driveway, slid off the edge and down a steep embankment. As the tractor fell from the roadway, it rolled several times, ejecting MacDonald, who did not survive. McDonald was taken to Wood River Chapel by Blaine County Coroner Russ Mikel.
