Motorhome Plunges Off of Highway Into Idaho River
This is my worst nightmare when it comes to motorhome travel. How many of you have been in a motorhome, going through some of Idaho's windy roads next to a river and you know inside that one wrong move and you are in big trouble?! It happened to these travelers and luckily they survived.
61-year-old Robert Sanchelli of Helena, Montana was driving eastbound on U.S. 12 about 30 miles west of Powell, Idaho when according to an article on KTVB. he lost control, veered off the side of the road and went over the embankment. He was pulling a 2008 Ford Focus on a trailer when the motorhome plunged about 200 feet and caught fire when it landed in the river. Again, the people inside are so fortunate to be alive.
Robert and his passenger, 56-year-old Janiel Sanchelli were taken to Syringa Hospital in Grangeville, Idaho and then airlifted to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston.
The severity of their injuries has not yet been released. Please keep both of them in your thoughts and prayers this weekend.
