Idaho State Police investigated a vehicle versus pedestrian collision in Lewiston, Idaho, which occurred at 5:00 pm on March 15, 2024.

A 36-year-old male from Lewiston was walking in the crosswalk, eastbound, across US Highway 12 and 3rd Avenue North. A 57-year-old male driving westbound in a white dodge pickup from 3rd avenue North made a left turn, striking the pedestrian.
