Press Release – Multiple Vehicle Crash at East Fork

East Fork 121223

On Tuesday, December 12, 2023, at approximately 5:51 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a multiple-vehicle crash with lane blockage and injuries at East Fork Rd. and State Highway 75.

Crash scene investigation determined that four vehicles in the southbound lane were involved in the collision. Witnesses reported that multiple cars were pulling to the side of Hwy 75 for an approaching ambulance with emergency lights traveling northbound when the crash occurred. 

A gray 2014 Volkswagen Passat, driven by a 49-year-old male from Wilson, Wyoming, traveling southbound at a high rate of speed, struck the rear of a white 2009 Nissan Rogue, driven by a 23-year-old male from Shoshone, Idaho. The Rogue was pushed forward from the force of the collision into the rear of a blue 2014 Honda Accord, driven by a 40-year-old female from Bellevue, Idaho, which in turn was pushed forward into a white 2014 Ford F-150 truck, driven by a 48-year-old male from Shoshone, Idaho with an adult male passenger.

The Passat and Rogue sustained substantial damages and were towed from the scene. The drivers of the Passat and the Accord were transported by ground ambulance to Wood River Medical Center for serious injuries. The Accord and F-150 truck sustained moderate damages but were driven from the scene. 

Both southbound lanes were closed for several hours. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision. The crash remains under investigation.
