Blackfoot Woman Killed in Crash


(FT HALL, ID)  –  A Blackfoot woman has died after a crash on I-15 near Fort Hall Friday evening.   Idaho State Police say an uncontrolled burn along the side of the freeway caused heavy smoke to drift into traffic. 93-year-old Maxine Cushman didn’t see the cars slowing down in front of her and slammed into a Ford pickup driven by a Heyburn man.  Cushman was pronounced dead at the scene.  Both the pickup’s driver and his passenger were uninjured.  All three involved were wearing seat belts.
