CANYON COUNTY – A deadly crash occurred this morning involving a Ford Truck and a Chevy station wagon killing 61 yr. old Jean Matthews of Marsing who was pronounced dead at the scene. Two adults in the truck were transported to the hospital and are listed in critical condition. Witnesses at the scene report that the station wagon crossed the double yellow center line causing the horrific crash. The crashed occurred at the intersection of Hwy 55 and Lake Road. The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office is conducting the investigation.
Crossing the center line and failing to yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic constitutes an infraction in Idaho and is evidence of negligence per se. We at Morton Law Offices, Chartered extend our heartfelt condolences to all of those involved in this crash and their families.
