WILDER, Idaho (AP) — A head-on crash east of Wilder has claimed the lives of two Homedale residents.

The Idaho State Police says 23-year-old Amador Cortinas was westbound on Idaho Highway 19 at about 3:30 a.m. Friday when his car veered into the oncoming lane, colliding with a sport utility vehicle driven by 23-year-old Jacob C. Andersen of Caldwell.

Cortinas and his passenger, 24-year-old Daniel J. Valdez, died at the scene. Andersen was hospitalized in Boise.

The highway was blocked for about three hours after the crash, which is still being investigated.
