The 22-year-old man who died after crashing into a power pole on Wednesday has been identified as Weston Bailey, of Kuna.
Bailey apparently lost control of his car and it smashed into a power pole near the intersection of Swan Falls and Kuna Mora late Wednesday night, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office reports. He died of blunt force trauma, according to the Ada County Coroner.
The crash was reported just after 11:45 p.m. at the intersection of Swan Falls and Kuna Mora roads.
The car was on fire when Kuna officers arrived, but they were able to pull the driver out before the car was engulfed in flames, ACSO reported Thursday morning. Bailey was the only person in the car and he died at the scene.
