On 02/24/2011 at 0113 hours Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle injury crash on Sand Hollow Road in Payette County.

Jenifer Korell, 36 of Weiser, was traveling northbound on Sand Hollow Road north of SE 3rd Avenue in a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo. For unknown reasons, Korell drove left of center and off the west road edge. She overcorrected, traveled back into the northbound lane, and drove off onto the east road edge. Korell overcorrected a second time causing the vehicle to veer back onto the roadway where it overturned and rolled coming to rest on its wheels.

Korell was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. She was transported by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center for serious injuries.

This crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police. Sgt. Cagle, as well as Payette County Deputies and EMS, assisted Cpl. Gripton at the scene.
