SALT LAKE CITY — A 59-year-old man from Utah was injured after a crash in Jerome, Idaho, on Tuesday, according to Idaho State Police.
At about 9:48 a.m., police say a man driving a 2006 Ford Freestyle was traveling southbound on South Lincoln Avenue at a "high rate of speed" and ran a red light at Yakima. The driver of the Ford Freestyle swerved to avoid a car turning left, said police.
The driver crossed the center lane and crashed into Marty Mickelson, 59, of Lewiston. Mickelson was traveling northbound in a 2018 Ram pickup pulling a horse trailer on South Lincoln Avenue at the Yakima intersection, said police.
The driver of the 2006 Ford Freestyle died of his injuries at the scene. He was identified as Lloyd Miller, 43, of Twin Falls. Police said that Miller was not wearing his seat belt.
Mickelson was transported by air ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.
The intersection was blocked for around three hours following the crash for investigation.
Further information, including the condition of Mickelson, was not released.
