Man treated and released after crash

Sheriff reports vehicle rolled 4 times

Express Staff Writer

An 18-year-old Jerome man was treated and released at St. Luke's Wood River after he rolled his vehicle Friday afternoon on state Highway 75 about 15 miles north of Ketchum.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office identified the man as Layne Paul Lasike. Sheriff Gene Ramsey said Lasike suffered "facial lacerations" but was not otherwise injured, even though he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

The accident occurred at about 4:45 p.m. near Prairie Creek Road. Ramsey said Lasike was southbound in a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am when he ran off the road, skidded for several hundred feet, hit a rock and rolled four times. Ramsey said Lasike ended up in the back seat.

The sheriff said Lasike was returning from work at Redfish Lake when the accident occurred.

"He fell asleep," Ramsey said.
