Press Release – Single Vehicle Fatality

On Sunday, November 17, 2019, at approximately 5:41 p.m. deputies from the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single-vehicle crash on State Highway 75 near Cottonwood Creek Circle, just north of Hailey, Idaho.

Jeffrey C. Browne, age 50 of Hailey, was identified as the driver and sole occupant of a 2004 blue Jeep Grand Cherokee. The investigation determined that Browne was traveling southbound on Highway 75 when he vehicle left the roadway south of Cottonwood Creek Circle, crashed through a fence, and high-centered on some bushes. 

The first deputy on the scene found Browne unresponsive with the engine still running and quickly broke out the front driver’s window to gain access to the victim and ignition. Deputies provided medical aid until Emergency Medical Services personnel from Wood River Fire and Rescue arrived and took over treatment. Browne was transported to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center by ground ambulance and later pronounced deceased. The cause of the crash has not been determined at this time and remains under investigation. Damage to the vehicle was estimated to be substantial. Browne was not wearing a seatbelt.
