Cody teen and dogs uninjured in rollover near Ralston

A Cody teen and his dogs ended up OK after a Monday morning rollover southwest of Ralston, on U.S. Highway 14-A.

Tristan Heath of Cody was taking his family’s dogs to a veterinarian in Powell when, around 6:45 a.m., a deer ran in front of his Chevrolet SUV.

“I swerved to keep from hitting the deer,” he said. “I missed the deer, but I paid the price.”

Heath lost control of the vehicle, which left the right side of the highway and rolled.

While the vehicle suffered some damage, Heath and the dogs were uninjured.

Heath called his parents. His mother took the dogs the rest of the way to the vet while his father waited with him at the accident scene.

“It was pretty scary,” Heath said. “I’m just glad I’m OK and the dogs are OK.”
