Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Addison Avenue’s eastbound lane and both lanes of Grandview Drive were blocked for about two hours Thursday after a car accident that sent one man to the hospital.

At around 7 p.m. on Thursday, the Idaho State Police responded to a two car crash on Grandview Drive and Addison Avenue in Twin Falls County.

Thirty-year-old Luis J. Nevarez of Kimberly, was driving north on Grandview Drive in a 2005 Nissan Maxima. He was traveling at a high speed and was unable to negotiate a ninety degree curve. His car went through a concrete barrier, over a twenty foot cliff, and it landed on its top at the southern edge of Addison Avenue.

Forty-nine-year-old Paula K. Niehaus, from Huron, South Dakota, was driving east on Addison Avenue in a 2007 Ford Sedan when her car was hit by debris.

Nevarez was transported via ground ambulance to St. Luke’s Magic Valley in Twin Falls. Niehaus and her passengers, 75-year-old Jack L. Holman and 70-year-old Myrna L. Holman, both from Henderson, Nevada, were not transported. Nevarez wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
