Express Staff Writer

A 27-year-old Bellevue woman was treated and released at St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center following a two-vehicle collision late Thursday afternoon south of Ketchum.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Susana Serrato-Ferreira. A Ketchum Fire Department report stated she suffered "traumatic chest pain and knee pain" from the collision, which occurred shortly after 4:30 p.m.

Sheriff's Lt. Jay Davis said Serrato-Ferreira was a passenger in a southbound 1998 Mazda driven by Jose Miguel Villa-Lopez, 36, also of Bellevue, which collided with a northbound white 2008 Dodge driven by Scott Lee Bailey, 33, Hailey. Davis said Bailey was turning left onto Hospital Drive when the collision occurred.

He said Bailey was issued a citation alleging failure to yield.

Serrato-Ferreira was transported the short distance to the hospital by Ketchum Fire Department ambulance.
