Idaho Man Mexican Illegal alien Critically Injured After Nearly Crashing Into OSP Patrol Car on Highway 95 South of Jordan Valley
Oregon State Police –
Hope he dies but look what a tab he has run up- all the police work and the free medical which he will never pay for nor will his employer who most likely looks the other way about his immigration status.
An Idaho man is in critical condition following a Wednesday night crash south of Jordan Valley after he nearly hit an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper’s patrol car before traveling off Highway 95 and rolling several times. The ongoing investigation indicates alcohol is a possible contributing factor.On July 1, 2009 at approximately 11:33 p.m., OSP Trooper Kurt Marvin was patrolling northbound on Highway 95 near milepost 46 when he spotted a vehicle traveling southbound towards his patrol car at a high rate of speed. Trooper Marvin obtained a speed reading of 82 mph in a 55 mph speed zone, slowed down to turn and stop the vehicle when it suddenly swerved into the northbound lane. Trooper Marvin swerved to avoid a collision and the vehicle nearly sideswiped the patrol car’s passenger side before traveling off the highway and rolling several times.
Trooper Marvin stopped and quickly exited his patrol car, finding an unconscious male lying on the ground in front of the vehicle. A brief area search for other occupants didn’t find anyone else so he started providing medical aid while awaiting emergency medical responders.
After about one hour a Jordan Valley ambulance and Air St. Luke’s medical helicopter arrived on scene. The critically injured unidentified driver was taken by air to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho.
Follow up ongoing investigation on Thursday confirmed the man’s identity as ENRIQUE CASAS VALDEZ, age 41, from Kuna, Idaho. The man’s next of kin have been notified.
No photographs available for release at this time.
