Boise woman killed in Fairview crash identified

BOISE - The Ada County Coroner's Office has released the name of a Boise woman who died after a car crash on Fairview Avenue in Boise.

Lisa R. Herman, 39, was pronounced dead at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center Friday morning.

Boise Police officers were called to a crash near Fairview Avenue and Five Mile Road just after 7 a.m. Officers say it appears the Herman was driving east on Fairview when her Mitsubishi Galant went off the road and struck a power pole.

The car then continued through a field and struck a building at the corner of Fairview and Sunrise Manor Way.

Police say no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Herman was found unresponsive inside the car when officers attempted to help her. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The cause of death is listed as "pending." The cause of the crash is also under investigation.

Because of the crash, about 1,600 Idaho Power customers in Boise and Meridian were left without power.

According to Idaho Power’s outage line, the affected area is from Franklin Road to Interstate 84, and from Cloverdale Road to Meridian Road.

A spokeswoman for Idaho Power says when crews arrived on scene they realized there was substantial damage to the pole and had to take more customers offline to make the repairs.

Power has since been fully restored to the area.
