State police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in a crash that injured three people near Jerome yesterday afternoon. That accident happened on Interstate 84 around 2:40 p.m. in Jerome County. 44 year old Pamela K.

Hawley was taken by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center. Hawley's passenger, 60 year old Nathaniel Adams of Ocala, Florida, was treated and released for his injuries at the scene.
