Two Canyon County residents injured in wreck

January 11, 2014 

Steam rises from a car that wrecked Friday evening outside a residence in the 600 block of Locust Lane in Nampa.


A black 1998 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Isaac Munoz, 21, of Nampa ran off the road in the 600 block of Locust Lane at 9:30 p.m. Friday, struck a rock retaining wall outside a home and hit two vehicles parked in the driveway.

The car, which had been headed west from Sunnyridge Road, caught on fire and Munoz and his passenger, Rayona Driskell, 19, were initially trapped in the vehicle. Neighbors pulled one of the victims, who Deputy Chief Dennis Strosnider of the Nampa Fire Department said was unconscious, out of the car.

Both Munoz and Driskell were injured in the crash. It was unclear where they were taken for treatment. The Canyon County Sheriff's Office reported they were taken to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, while the Nampa Fire Department said they were taken to St. Al's Nampa hospital.

St. Alphonsus spokesman Joshua Schlaich said Saturday afternoon he had no information he could report on either Munoz or Driskell.

Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash, Canyon County sheriff's deputies said. No arrests have been made or citations issued, but the investigation is continuing.
