BOISE -- Idaho State Police investigators say the single-vehicle crash involving state controller Donna Jones was caused when she veered off the roadway then lost control as she tried to correct course.

The 73-year-old elected official suffered severe injuries in the May 25 accident and is still recovering in a Boise hospital rehabilitation unit.

Investigators confirm Jones was wearing a seat belt as she lost control, ultimately causing her Cadillac Escalade to roll once before stopping in the I-84 median near Heyburn.
