A 20-year-old Meridian man was hospitalized after a head-on crash on Bogus Basin Road Sunday morning, according to Idaho State Police. The crash occurred near milepost 10.6 just after 11 a.m.

Tyler Larsen was taken by air ambulance to a Boise hospital. At 7:15 p.m. Sunday, a hospital spokesman said Larsen had been treated and released.

Police say Larsen was driving north on Bogus Basin Road in a Lincoln Continental when a south-bound Jeep Wrangler crossed the center line and struck his vehicle.

Travis Blatchley, a 24-year-old Boisean man was driving the Jeep Wrangler. Neither Blatchley or the passenger in his vehicle — Clay Lindquist, a 24-year-old Nampa man — were transported to the hospital.

Police said Blatchley and Lindquist were wearing their seat belts; they do not know if Larsen was wearing his seat belt.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Boise Fire Department assisted Sunday.
