One person dead in Bogus Basin Road crash

January 18, 2014 

An Ada County deputy coroner and a firefighter make their way to a vehicle that went off Bogus Basin Road (near the hairpin turn at Dry Creek, at about Milepost 4) and crashed into the ravine about 100 feet below. The driver was killed in the Saturday morning crash.


A man driving north on Bogus Basin Road was killed Saturday morning after he lost control of his car and slid 100 feet down an embankment near Milepost 4 and struck a tree at 8:30 a.m., the Ada County Sheriff's Office reported.

Rescue workers from the Boise Fire Department hiked down to the car and found the driver dead inside the vehicle. A tentative identification has been made, but deputies did not publicly identify the man pending notification of next of kin.

Emergency crews are expected to be at the site for a while. Please use caution if you're traveling up or down the hill.
