BUHL, Idaho (KLIX) – One person was taken to the hospital late Thursday night after a single-vehicle crash near Buhl.
The crash, which was reported about 10:43 p.m., occurred on River Road at Silver Creek Road off U.S. Highway 46, according to Idaho State Police.
Twin Falls resident Teodoro Garza, 34, was traveling eastbound on River Road in a 1993 Honda Accord, carrying passengers Tony Tellez, 37, and Heraclio Garza Nevarez, 22, both of Buhl.
