On June 12, 2011 at 2:42 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle injury crash in Jerome County. Pamela K. Hawley, 44 of Lawrence, KS, was traveling eastbound on I84 around mile marker 168 in a 1992 Subaru Loyale when for unknown reasons she lost control of her vehicle. The vehicle left the roadway along the right road edge and traveled through a fence before crashing into the Southern Idaho RV and Marine dealership on Bob Barton Road.

Hawley was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center. Hawley's passenger Nathaniel Adams, 60 of Ocala, FL, was treated and released for his injuries at the scene. Hawley's second passenger, Heath J. Crooks, 39 of Lawrence, KS, sustained a serious injury to his arm and was transported by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise.

None of the occupants in the vehicle were wearing a seatbelt and alcohol is believed to be a factor.

This crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police. Trooper N. Walker was assisted at the scene by Sgt. Thompson and Trooper Chandler.
