Seven people killed on Idaho roads in nine days

BOISE -- We're two weeks into what the Idaho Transportation Department calls the 100 deadliest days on Idaho's freeways and highways, and already seven people have been killed in traffic accidents this month alone.

"That's disturbing," said Idaho State Police Trooper Andrew Nakashima.

Three of the traffic fatalities happened Monday, both around the same time, but on two different highways.

A woman and a boy were killed in a crash on State Highway 55 south of Cascade. Four other people were also hurt in that accident. Two of them are in critical condition at Saint Alphosus Regional Medical Center in Boise.

Less than an hour later, a 26-year-old man was killed on U.S. Highway 95 south of Midvale in a head-on crash that also sent a woman and a baby to the hospital.Full story.

Be careful out there. Do you do more driving in the summer then you do the rest of the year?
