Posted by Attorneys of Idaho | Jun 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

Ashton, ID (June 16, 2024) – A deadly crash occurred around 9:00 p.m. on Thursday on Highway 20 north of Ashton in Fremont County and resulted in the death of a 65-year-old man, according to state police.

The crash occurred after the 65-year-old man, who was driving a Toyota Matrix with two passengers, an 86-year-old woman and a 66-year-old woman, collided for unknown reasons with a UPS semi-truck, state police confirmed. The semi-truck was driven by a 37-year-old man from Billings, Montana.

The driver of the Toyota was transported via air ambulance, and his passengers were transported via ground ambulance to a local hospital. The Matrix driver later died as a result of his injuries while at the hospital. Lanes were blocked for approximately three hours while emergency responders worked to assist those on the scene and clear the area. The investigation remains ongoing in the interim, and witnesses were asked to come forward.

We offer our sincere condolences to the deceased victim's loved ones. Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.

Fatal Vehicle Accidents in Idaho

Fatal car collisions, particularly those involving multiple vehicles, can occur on any Idaho roadway, including urban streets, rural highways, and higher-speed interstates. In the event that you were injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident in Idaho, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party, regardless of the cause of the collision or the location of the scene.

A wrongful death claim may be filed when a victim dies as a consequence of the negligence or misconduct of another motorist. In essence, it provides families with the opportunity to receive compensation for any financial losses they may have incurred as a consequence of their loss. This may encompass hospital and funeral expenses, as well as missing wages.

Dealing with the loss and anguish of a loved one is a challenging experience, especially when it occurs in an avoidable vehicle accident. Families frequently encounter persistent financial challenges in addition to the emotionally draining bereavement. If you believe that the negligence of another motorist was the cause of your loved one's mortality, you may be able to seek legal compensation to alleviate your financial burdens.
