On November 14, 2018 at approximately 11:47 a.m., we received a report of a single vehicle collision with a small group of sheep on Highway 20 at milepost 174 near Stanton’s Crossing in Blaine County, Idaho.
An Idaho State Police Trooper in the area responded to the scene. The seven sheep killed were a group of strays ahead of the main flock traveling towards the Sheep Bridge Crossing when the collision occurred. The driver, Shannon Ferguson, age 45 of Fairfield, Idaho, was traveling eastbound on Hwy 20. Ferguson was not injured in the accident, but her vehicle was towed from the scene. Idaho State Police will be conducting an investigation.
Blaine County Sheriff Steve Harkins asks drivers to be cautious and alert for both sheep and wildlife migrating through the area this time of year.
