Zachary Dole

Dole seemed in good spirits as he spoke with Big County News via Facebook today.

LEWISTON, ID - A Clarkston man that is still hospitalized from a Thain Road crash on July 31 is looking for the good samaritans who he says saved his life. 31-year-old Zachary Dole, of Clarkston, was riding his 2016 Kawasaki motorcycle on Thain Road when he was hit by a 2017 Dodge pickup. Dole is still at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane making his initial recovery, where he says he has already had three surgeries.

Dole reached out to Big Country News Wednesday, looking for the people who he says helped save his life. "I'm looking for the 3 people who took action to save my life by using a belt as a tourniquet. I found one, her name is Natasha, but I'm looking for an Erin and a male who took his belt off that saved my life," said Dole's message. "I would like to meet them in person and thank them for their courage for acting so quickly to save my life."

Dole also tells us that he walked for the first time today since the crash. If you are a person who assisted Dole, or know someone who was, you can email news@bigcountry977.com, and we will pass the message along.  A GoFundMe account has also been setup for Dole, you can find it at https://www.gofundme.com/f/single-father-has-bad-motorcycle-accident
