ONTARIO, OR -- An Idaho driver survived a crash that sent him off a bridge into the Snake River, Monday. According to Oregon State Police, 34-year-old Steven Arrasmith stopped to help another driver who had hit a patch of black ice and crashed near the Oregon border.
Arrasmith was outside his vehicle when another car lost control and hit his Jeep, sending him over the guardrail. He tried to hang on, but was injured and fell 50 feet into the river. He was able to take off his heavier clothes and swim to an island.
He started yelling for help and was eventually rescued. Arrasmith was taken to a hospital in Ontario where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
