Motorist in good condition after rollover

Police issue citation in Highway 75 crash

An 18-year-old Shoshone man was listed in good condition Monday at St. Luke's Wood River after being injured in a single-vehicle rollover late Saturday night on state Highway 75 about four miles south of Timmerman Junction.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Daniel Linares. Sheriff's Capt. Jay Davis said Linares was transported to the hospital with a dislocated hip, head and body lacerations and head and back pain.

The accident occurred around 11:50 p.m. when Linares was northbound in a blue 2002 Chevrolet Impala. Davis said he lost control of the vehicle and overcorrected, causing the car to cross the southbound lane of traffic and to roll "numerous times."

Information was not available regarding seat belt use, but Davis said Linares was ejected from the vehicle.

Davis said investigation showed that Linares may have swerved to avoid a deer or may have been texting at the time of the accident. He said Linares was issued a citation alleging "failure to maintain lanes."
