After more than two weeks of investigating a highway collision in October that claimed the life of a Carey high school student, the Blaine County Sheriff's Office apparently still hasn't figured out what caused the crash.
If it has, it hasn't yet shared that information with the Idaho Mountain Express in spite of numerous requests.
The only information so far from the Sheriff's Office is a news release issued Oct. 27, the day after the accident. The press release stated that the roadway was icy at the time of the accident but did not explain what role the ice may have played.
The collision occurred about 7:30 a.m. on U.S. Highway 20 near Stanton Crossing in southern Blaine County when a Carey School driver-education car driven by 15-year-old Austin Hennefer collided with a vehicle driven by Sergio Lopez-Rodriguez, 45, of Gooding. Hennefer was killed in the crash. Two passengers in the driver education car and Lopez-Rodriguez were seriously injured.
