Press Release – T-Bone Crash Near Smiley Creek

Smiley Creek Crash

On Friday, May 12, 2023, at approximately 10:26 a.m., Blaine County Sheriff's deputies responded to a two-vehicle T-Bone style crash with injuries on State Highway 75 near Smiley Creek Lodge in northern Blaine County, Idaho.

Crash scene investigation determined that a 42-year-old Dietrich man was driving a 2015 white Ford commercial van northbound on Hwy 75 with a juvenile passenger. As the van came around the curve into Smiley Creek, a 1996 red Ford Ranger truck, driven by a 58-year-old man from  Golden Valley Arizona, pulled into the roadway in front of the van at a slower rate of speed. The van was attempting to pass the slower vehicle, when the truck initiated a left-hand turn onto Smiley Creek Rd. The van struck the Ranger on the driver's side in the southbound lane of the intersection. Both vehicles came to rest in the southbound barrow pit.

The driver of the Ranger was flown by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise. The driver of the van and juvenile passenger were wearing seatbelts and had only minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained substantial damages and were towed from the scene.
