COUNCIL, Idaho — Three people were hurt Saturday morning in a crash on U.S. 95 south of Council.
The three-vehicle wreck happened at 3:35 a.m. near Goodrich Road.
According to Idaho State Police, 26-year-old Michael Garcia was headed north in a Pontiac G6 when he crossed over the centerline into the oncoming lane. A southbound Jeep, driven by 42-year-old Sarah Jacobson of Cambridge, swerved into the northbound lane to avoid the Pontiac.
Garcia's car sideswiped Jacobson's Jeep, then continued north in the southbound lanes, crashing into a southbound Freightliner.
Garcia was airlifted to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Jacobson and her passenger, 23-year-old Brianna Pixler, of Hamilton, Montana, were taken by ambulance to Weiser Memorial Hospital.
The semi driver, 73-year-old Andrew Johnson of Saskatchewan, was unhurt. Garcia, Johnson, and Pixler were wearing seatbelts, police say; Jacobson was not.
The collision blocked U.S. 95 for three and a half hours.
