GRANGEVILLE – On January 7, 2023, at approximately 09:05, Idaho State Police are investigating a two vehicle crash near the intersection of US Highway 95 and Denver Rd near Cottonwood, Idaho.
According to the report released by the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office, a 29-year-old female (sole occupant) was traveling southbound on US 95 in a 1996 Toyota 4Runner when she lost control of her vehicle, drove left of center, and struck an oncoming vehicle traveling in the northbound lane. The oncoming vehicle was a 2007 Mazda 6 sedan, driven by a 37-year-old male. Both drivers were transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital.
Speed too fast for conditions is a suspected factor of this crash. Evidence indicates the driver of the Mazda was wearing his seatbelt and the driver of the Toyota was not wearing her seatbelt.
