Rollover leaves man in critical condition

Twin Falls man injured Sunday south of Carey

Express Staff Writer

A 20-year-old Twin Falls man was in critical condition Tuesday following a single-vehicle rollover early Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 93 about eight miles south of Carey.

Justin Stewart remained in the intensive care unit at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. He was initially taken by Wood River Fire and Rescue Ambulance to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center south of Ketchum, where his condition was stabilized, before being transported to Saint Alphonsus.

Blaine County Sheriff's Lt. Jay Davis said Stewart suffered a "broken femur and head trauma."

The accident was reported at about 7:10 a.m. Sunday, but Davis said it may have happened several hours earlier. He said Stewart was northbound in a white 1999 Pontiac Sunfire when he "failed to negotiate the curve, went end over end and rolled a couple times."

Davis said Stewart was ejected from the vehicle and that he was likely not wearing a seatbelt.

The accident remained under investigation Tuesday. Davis said it was unknown why Stewart lost control of his vehicle.
