At approximately 4:20 PM today, March 11, 2014, Idaho State Police investigated a three-vehicle injury crash at the junction of US highway 93 and Golf Course Rd just north of the Perrine Bridge. Jennifer Browne, age 35 of Twin Falls, was southbound on US93, when she failed to yield to a traffic signal and struck Jeffrey Walker, age 48 of Jerome as he was northbound on US93 turning left onto Golf Course Rd. After striking Walker, Browne's vehicle continued toward the right shoulder where she overcorrected, went into the median, and struck a vehicle driven by Robbie Kennison, age 43 of Twin Falls. Kennison's vehicle was also northbound on US93 preparing to turn left onto Golf Course Rd.

All drivers were wearing their seatbelts. Ambulances responded but did not transport any patients. The turn lanes to northbound US93 were blocked for approximately 40 minutes. Walker's vehicle was in the intersection, but traffic was able to move around it until it was removed.


All lanes of travel are open following a crash on US93 at Golf Course Rd in southern Jerome County. The three-vehicle injury crash resulted in the blockage of the northbound onramp to US93 at the intersection of Golf Course Rd, but these lanes are now clear. More information will be released as necessary. As a correction, this is in District Four, not District Five as previously released.
