Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - The Idaho State Police along with authorities from Twin Falls County were notified of a one vehicle accident about 4:30 am this Wednesday morning. When they arrived at 3700 North and 4000 East, which is Highway 30 just outside of Hansen, they found a pickup truck had struck a guide wire support pole for a power pole. The wire was pulled into the lane of traffic but the power pole did not sustain any significant damage. Inside the truck there was some blood in the vehicle but no driver. Turns out the driver had a warrant for his arrest.

Twin Falls deputies located the driver and registered owner, Armando Cisneros Hernandez, 27, at his residence in the City of Twin Falls. The man was told to return to the scene of the crash. As authorities continued their investigation, they discovered Hernandez has a $4,000 warrant for his arrest with charges of contempt of court and failure to pay fines. He was arrested at the scene and taken to the hospital for medical clearance and then transported to the Twin Falls County Jail. He was charged with leaving the scene of a property damage crash, not having a driver’s license and for not wearing a seatbelt.

Police say the driver lost control of the vehicle more than likely due to the fog.

The road was closed while Idaho Power crews made repairs to the pole’s support system. The road was opened about 6:45 am police say.
