Storm suffered an injury to his right hand. He was treated at Sonora Regional Medical Center. 16 year old Danielle West suffered broken ribs … she was also taken to S.R.M.C. 14 year old Dalton Brown was treated for cuts and scratches. A pair of 18 year olds, Ronne Bach and Andrews Tessier were not injured.
