Two injured in fiery late-night Nampa crash

January 10, 2014 

Neighbors pulled an unconscious woman from a burning car after a one-car accident south of Nampa that injured two people shortly before 10 p.m. Friday.

The car was headed west in the 600 block of East Locust Lane at a high rate of speed when the 21-year-old male driver lost control and the vehicle went off the road into a retaining wall and a tree before hitting a fence and a vehicle, Canyon County Sheriff's Sgt. Doug Daniels said.

"Alcohol was highly likely a factor," Daniels said.

The driver was able to walk after the crash but his sister, 18, was unconscious, Daniels said. Both were taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Deputy Nampa Fire Chief Doug Strosnider said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

The crash is still under investigation by the Canyon County Sheriff's Office.
