On Friday March 26, 2010, Idaho State Police investigated a head on crash at the intersection of Middleton and Orchard in Nampa. The crash, which occurred at 9:30pm, involved a 2007 Chevy Cobalt and a 1999 Ford Explorer.

Nampa police advised that they had received several calls just prior to the crash of a Chevy Cobalt northbound on Middleton Road that was striking poles and mailboxes. The Chevy Cobalt, driven by Lindsay Jones, 25 from Caldwell, was northbound on Middleton Road when she went out of her lane and hit the Ford Explorer head on at the intersection of Middleton and Orchard. Both vehicles came to rest in the middle of the intersection, blocking the road for several hours. The Ford Explorer was driven by 70 year old Martha Persaud, from Nampa.

All subjects were wearing seatbelts and alcohol is a factor in this crash. All subjects were transported to St Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, including a 9 year old female that was a passenger in the Ford Explorer. The crash is under investigation by Trooper J. Hurley.
