A two-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 93 near the Flying J truck stop in Jerome last Thursday left two people with injuries, including a Hailey resident.
Cindy Leonard, 70, of Hailey, was driving a 1998 Honda CRV northbound on Highway 93 approaching the I-84 westbound ramp when she failed to yield to a red light and collided with a 2015 GMC Sierra driven by Franklin Bowen, 58, of Burley, Idaho State Police reported.
Both drivers were wearing seatbelts and were transported to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls, according Idaho State Police.
Police were assisted by Jerome Rural Fire, the Jerome County Sheriff’s Office and Magic Valley Paramedics. The southbound lanes of U.S. 93 were blocked for about two hours, according to Idaho State Police.
Leonard is still at St. Luke’s Twin Falls and Bowen has been released.
