Press Release – Two Vehicle Collison South of Bellevue

Colis Crash

On Sunday, August 7, 2022, at approximately 4:34 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 75 near Pero Rd, south of Bellevue, Idaho.

The crash scene investigation determined that Guadalupe Joann Colis, age 21 of Hailey, Idaho was the sole occupant of a 2016 Ford Focus traveling northbound on Hwy 75 when for an unknown reason the Focus crossed the fog line on the northbound side of the road before correcting and crossing the center dotted line striking a 2007 white Toyota Tundra traveling southbound on Hwy 75, driven by Darren Scott Johnson, age 55 of Boise, Idaho with a single passenger. The force of the crash knocked the Tundra onto the passenger side of the vehicle.

All three occupants were transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center. Johnson and his passenger were both wearing seatbelts and received non-life-threatening injuries. Colis who was not wearing a seatbelt received serious injuries. Colis was later transported by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise, Idaho in critical condition. 

Both vehicles received substantial damage and were towed from the scene. Both lanes of Hwy 75 were closed for approximately one and a half hours. Traffic was diverted through Glendale Rd. and Baseline Rd.
