HAYDEN - A Hayden woman was taken to the hospital Sunday after a plow truck collided with her car on U.S. 95, according to Idaho State Police.

Sky H. Hembree, 18, turned southbound onto U.S. 95 from westbound Lancaster Road, just north of Hayden, at 2:55 p.m., police said. Hembree's 1997 Honda Accord was struck by a northbound 1992 Northern Lakes Fire District snowplow truck, driven by Lindsey J. Robinson, 25, of Coeur d'Alene.

Police said Hembree sustained minor injuries and was transported to Kootenai Medical Center, where she was treated and released.

Robinson was not injured, police said, nor was Clint Goulb, 19, a passenger in the Accord.

The collision broke the left front wheel assembly on the Accord and damaged the front of the vehicle, said ISP Cpl. Charlie Greear. The Accord was pushed into a snow bank on the northeast corner of Lancaster and U.S. 95.

Greear said Hembree did not see the plow truck. There was no evidence of impairment, he added.

Greear estimated the plow truck was traveling about 40-45 mph at the time of the incident, below the posted 55 mph limit.
