A two vehicle motor vehicle collision occurred at the intersection of Willis Road and Emmett Road near Middleton, Idaho at approximately 3:45 p.m., on Saturday, April 24, 2010, which resulted in seven (7) people going to the hospital. A 2003 Chevrolet Trail Blazer was reportedly driven by Lyudmila Yanchuk, 40, of Meridian, which was traveling eastbound on Willis Road. Yanchuk was reportedly not familiar with the area and failed to yield at a stop sign at the intersection of Willis Road and Emmett Road. Yanchuck's vehicle was struck by a 1991 Isuzu Box Van, traveling northbound on Emmett Road driven by Terry Asher, 37, of Emmett. The box van rolled, coming to rest on its top, and the Trail Blazer collided with a power pole. Alcohol is not a factor in this crash. The crash is still under investigation Idaho State Police.
When approaching a stop sign, the driver has the duty to come to a complete stop and then yield-the-right of way to traffic traveling in the cross direction. We do not know at this juncture what caused the driver of the vehicle to disobey the stop sign or whether the driver was distracted, but clearly the vehicle failed to stop at the intersection controlled by a stop sign resulting in seven individuals sustaining injury requiring them to go to the hospital to be evaluated further.
