A two-vehicle accident that occurred on Friday around 3:30 p.m. at the junction of state Highway 75 and U.S. Highway 20 left a driver and passengers with minor injuries and one traffic citation issued.
According to the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office, a crash scene investigation indicated that Taylor L. Noles, 23, of Idaho Falls, was traveling west on Highway 20 in a 2018 black Ford Escape with two minor children. Noles failed to yield at the stop sign and collided with Patricia A. Williams, 80, of Hailey, who was driving a 2003 gold Chrysler PT cruiser northbound on Highway 75.
Occupants of Noles’ vehicle were transported to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center to be evaluated for minor injuries, and according to the hospital, Noles was released the same day. No record of Williams being admitted into the hospital was found.
Noles was issued a citation for failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign. All occupants of both vehicles were wearing their seat belts, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
