1 Dead in Shoshone Crash – Twin Falls Times

SHOSHONE • One person is dead after a Monday evening crash in Shoshone.

Around 6:30 p.m., Johnathon Jackson, 32, of Shoshone, was driving a 2000 Subaru Impreza south on U.S. 93 when he missed the curve in the road coming into Shoshone and slid into the gravel area near the train tracks, said Idaho State Police trooper Jason Lalonde. The car slid on the gravel until it hit a pole near the intersection of U.S. 93 and North Rail Street West, Lalonde said.

Jackson was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s Magic Valley, where he was pronounced dead.

Doundie Caldwell, a cashier at the Valley Country Store across the street from the crash, said a man pushed open the door to the store and told her to call 911 because there was a crash.

“I just saw a big cloud of dust,” she said.

The man returned to the store and told her it looked like the vehicle had been traveling at a high rate of speed, then lost control on the corner.

A few dozen people milled around the scene Monday evening wondering what happened.

Many speculated that the vehicle had been hit by a train because of the location of the vehicle, but troopers said there was no collision with a train.

Shoshone Police, Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies and Idaho State Police responded.

Vehicle and train traffic around the scene were temporarily stopped.

ISP is investigating the crash.

Three Vehicle Crash on US Highway 90 Leaves One Person Dead

5 hours 1 minute ago by RELEASE

Iberia Parish- A Jeanerette man has succumbed to injuries he sustained today in a three vehicle crash on US Highway 90 east of LA Highway 88.

The initial investigation conducted by Troopers indicates that at 1:12 p.m., 21 year old Dawn Broussard of New Iberia, was driving a 2007 Mercury passenger car east on US Highway 90. For reasons still under investigation, Broussard traveled through the median into the westbound lanes and struck a 2008 Honda passenger car driven by 47 year old Jarwin Bourque of Jeanerette. After impact, Broussard’s vehicle continued traveling east in the westbound lanes and struck a 2010 Toyota Camry driven by 49 year old Charles Robertson of New Iberia.

Broussard was wearing a seat belt and was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries. Bourque was properly restrained and was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Shortly after arriving he died as a result of his injuries. Robertson, who was also wearing his seat belt, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers do not suspect impairment was a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

This crash remains under investigation.

While the cause of this crash remains under investigation, Troopers remind drivers that distractions inside or outside of the vehicle remain factors in crashes. Distracted driving is any activity which diverts a driver’s attention away from the primary task of driving. Distractions include texting, eating or drinking, talking to passengers or even using a navigation system. By reducing distractions drivers can reduce the risk of being involved in a crash.
