Press Release –Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Collision

On Sunday, December 15, 2019, at approximately 10:24 a.m. deputies from the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash on Baseline Road in Bellevue, Idaho.

The crash scene investigation determined that Manuel A. Chavez-Silva, age 72 of Bellevue, Idado, was hit by a silver 2006 Ford Explorer driven by Sergio Vallepasillas, age 22 of Bellevue, Idaho. Vallespasillas was traveling west on Baseline Road. As the Explorer approached a tractor and hay trailer parked on the south side of the road facing east, Chavez-Silva jumped off the trailer and attempted to cross the road to open a gate. Vallepasillas was unable to stop in time due to ice on the roadway and struck Chavez-Silva in the face with his driver's side mirror. Chavez-Silva, who sustained non-life-threatening injuries, was transported to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center in Ketchum and later flown to St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise. The Explorer sustained damages estimated to be less than $1500 and was able to drive from the scene under its own power. Vallepasillas and his passengers were all wearing seatbelts and were uninjured in the collision. No citations were issued.
