Idaho State Police are investigating a crash that killed an Emmett woman Wednesday on Idaho 52 east of Payette.
Police investigated the crash at about 12:24 p.m. at milepost 13. They said Tina Helmick, 51, was westbound in a 1990 Geo Prizm and tried to turn left at the highway's intersection with Southeast 1st Avenue. Manuel Oritz-Monoz, 59, of Payette was westbound on Idaho 52 in a 1993 Ford farm truck hauling corn.
Investigators said Helmick turned in front of Oritz-Monoz, who was unable to stop. He hit Helmick's vehicle on the driver's side.
Helmick died at the scene.
A passenger in Helmick's car, Shawn Herrman, 36, of Emmett, was taken by ground ambulance to Saint Alphonsus in Ontario. Helmick's other passenger, Michael Garza, 22, of Emmett, was taken by air ambulance to Saint Alphonsus in Boise.
Oritz-Monoz and another of Helmick's passengers, Michael Spicer, 20, of Emmett, were not injured in the crash.
