BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Ada County officials have released the name of a 43-year-old Emmett woman who died after her car struck a horse on Idaho Highway 16 northwest of Boise.

Coroner Erin Sonnenberg says Alma Sanchez died Monday morning of a head injury. He says her car was eastbound at about 5 a.m. when it struck a horse, veered off the road, through a fence and into a field. It crashed through another section of barbed-wire fence and went over a dirt driveway before hitting a rock wall.

Two passengers in her car were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries.

Another vehicle hit the horse's carcass in the road, causing the car to flip over. One of the two people in that car was injured.
