Idaho State Police are reporting an accident with a school bus and a pickup truck in Southern Idaho.

Pickup Truck Hits School Bus North of Twin Falls in Bellevue

The crash happened early Friday morning around 6:45 on State Highway 75 near milepost 102 which is close to the rest stop at the Highway 20 intersection at the bottom of Timmerman Hill. The accident is under investigation by the Idaho State Police. The report states:

A 27-year-old male from Fairfield was driving a 2004 Ford F150 pickup northbound on SH75 and crossed the center line and went into the southbound lane of travel.

A 62-year-old female was driving a school bus southbound on SH75. The pickup was struck by the bus and went off the left shoulder.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. The driver of the pickup was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital. No kids were on the bus at the time of the crash.

The Idaho 511 website lists that area of travel as difficult right now. The traffic cameras show snow in the area but not on the roads. The accident blocked traffic for about 2 hours Friday morning.
