GRANGEVILLE A Craigmont woman received minor injuries in a two-car crash on the Grangeville truck route last Friday afternoon, Nov. 2.
Ruth Greiner, 56, was transported to Syringa Hospital for treatment.
The accident occurred just before 2:45 p.m. at the truck route’s intersection with North Meadow Street and Lukes Gulch Road, according to Idaho State Police Trooper Cory Juber.
A 2017 Ford Focus, driven by Keith Robeson, 44, of Kamiah, was traveling southbound on Lukes Gulch onto North Meadow and failed to yield to Greiner’s 1994 Toyota Tercel that was traveling eastbound on the truck route. The Ford struck the Toyota on the driver’s side, causing it to spin 180 degrees and go off the south side of the road. The Ford came to rest in the eastbound lane.
Robeson was cited for failure to yield. It is unknown whether either driver was wearing a seat belt. Airbags in the Toyota deployed.
ISP was assisted on scene by Grangeville Police, Idaho County Sheriff’s Office and Syringa Ambulance.
