On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at approximately 5 p.m. the Idaho State Police investigated a three vehicle injury crash on U.S. Highway 93 at mile post 57, in Jerome County.

A line of vehicles headed north on U.S. Highway 93 were slowing down for a vehicle that was turning left on to 200 S. Jodene Hollingshead, 58, of Dietrich, driving a 2011 Dodge Durango, failed to stop in time for the slowing traffic. Hollingshead hit the back of a 2008 Ford F150 pickup, driven by Richard P. Pruneau, 51, of Shoshone. Pruneau's vehicle struck the rear of a 2001 GMC Sonoma Pickup driven by Kenneth R. Miller, 55, of Jerome.

The drivers of all three vehicles were wearing seatbelts. Pruneau was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center. The north bound lanes of U.S. Highway 93 were blocked for approximately an hour and twenty minutes.

This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
