Pregnant woman taken by Life Flight after rollover crash

Woman flown to hospital after rollover crash.

BOISE --  A pregnant woman was flown to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center after her SUV rolled over at Highway 16 and Colton Lane north of Firebird Raceway.  

Sgt. Ryan Wilkie with the Ada County Sheriff's Office says the SUV landed upside down. The trapped woman was extricated to get the 22-week pregnant woman out of the vehicle.

Highway 16 was blocked in both directions for about 30 minutes. 

Wilkie says while the crash is still under investigation, it appears the driver heading northbound overcorrected and crossed into oncoming traffic. 

Fortunately, no one else was involved in the crash.
