NINE MILE, Mont. -

St. Patrick’s Hospital staff tell NBC Montana that a man pulled from a wreck in Nine Mile on Friday remains in serious condition. The man had been trapped in his vehicle for three days. Authorities say 30-year old Shaun Lee’s vehicle had gone down an embankment, and that he became pinned by a steering wheel.

Responders say Lee was conscious and able to speak when crews got to him, but thirsty and in pain. He had been discovered by a fire crew doing prevention work. Authorities say Lee is a resident of South Carolina, and has relatives in Montana.
