Yellowstone National Park, Montana – The National Park Service reports that on Saturday night, May 13, 2023, rangers from Yellowstone National Park reacted to an incident that resulted in the discovery of a dead woman inside a car.

According to a news release from the park, the incident took place on Craig Pass, about three miles south of Old Faithful. When rangers got on the scene, the car had reportedly been driven into a snowbank and a man was standing outside of it.
