Aruaz Osario crash

On Tuesday, December 27, 2022, at approximately 7:42 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash on State Highway 75 at milepost 105.5, south of Bellevue, Idaho.

Crash scene investigation determined that a gray 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by a 25-year-old male from Shoshone, Idaho, was traveling southbound on Highway 75 with a 38-year-old male passenger when they hit black ice in the roadway causing them to lose control of the vehicle. The Jeep crossed over the northbound lane, went off the roadway, and impacted a power pole head-on located on the northbound shoulder of the road.  The impact of the collision downed a 20,000-volt power transmission line and caused a power outage in Bellevue, Idaho. 

Both the driver and passenger were transported to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. The front driver and passenger side airbags were deployed and both occupants were wearing their seatbelts. 

The Jeep sustained major front-end damages and was towed from the scene. Damage to the power was estimated at $10,000 by Idaho Power.
