A Sun Valley woman was transported to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center following a rush-hour vehicle accident Thursday morning at the intersection of state Highway 75 and Elkhorn Road.
Sun Valley Police Chief Cameron Daggett identified the victim as 47-year-old Susan Conner.
Ketchum Fire Department Chief Mike Elle said the woman suffered "chest injuries," but Daggett described the injuries as "non-life threatening" and said they may have been caused by the woman's seatbelt.
The accident occurred at about 7:50 a.m., backing up northbound commuter traffic all the way south to East Fork Road.
Daggett said Conner, driving a gold 2006 Subaru Outback, was southbound and turning left onto Elkhorn Road when she was struck by a northbound maroon 1997 Nissan Altima driven by Brigitte Karlozich, 46, of Hailey.
Daggett described the mishap as a 'failure to yield accident." No citations had been issued as of Thursday afternoon but the accident remained under investigation.
