Icy Roads Claim Idaho Woman’s Life
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say a Nampa woman has died after two vehicles collided on an icy interstate. Idaho State Police say 73-year-old Imogene Robinson died at the scene of the crash Tuesday evening at milepost 37 on Interstate 84 near Nampa.
Robinson was the passenger in a car driven by 51-year-old Johnny Robinson. They were traveling west on the interstate when the driver lost control and the car slid sideways. A 39-year-old Wilder man driving a pickup truck struck in the same direction struck the Robinsons’ vehicle and pushed it into the median.
State police say in a Tuesday statement it is unknown whether the occupants were wearing seatbelts. It was not immediately clear whether Johnny Robinson or Paul Simcox, the driver of the pickup, were injured.
