According to the Sheriff’s Office, Corban James Napualani McBride, 25, of Hailey, was driving southbound on state Highway 75 north of East Fork Road, in a white 2013 Dodge Avenger, when he collided head on with an Idaho Department of Transportation 2015 Mach snowplow being driven northbound by 25-year-old Benjamin D.

Both trucks sustained damages and McBride was transported to the hospital for injuries. According to Joy Prudek, spokeswoman for St. Luke’s Wood River, McBride was transferred to St. Alphonsus hospital in Boise. As of Tuesday, McBride is in serious condition at St. Alphonsus.
