TWIN FALLS — A woman who was struck and killed by a car Saturday night in Twin Falls was sitting in the roadway at the time of the crash, an Idaho State Police trooper said.
The trooper said the woman, Aikoma Nensy, 38, of Micronesia, was involved in an argument with a man, JonJon Anakeneto, 38, also of Micronesia, while crossing Second Avenue East near the intersection of Ketchum Street, and sat in the road. A report had been called into police about the disturbance, and officers were on their way to the scene when the crash occurred at about 10:30 p.m.
The two were hit by a car driven by Karen D. Guymon, 46, of Twin Falls. The man was apparently trying to get the woman out of the road when the crash occurred, ISP said.
Nensy was pronounced dead at the scene, while Anakeneto was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center, where he was reported to be in good condition Sunday afternoon. Guymon was taken to a local emergency room via personal vehicle. She was not a patient at the hospital Sunday.
“It all happened so fast,” said a Twin Falls resident who lives near the scene of the crash who declined to be named. He said he was outside his house just before the people were hit. A short while later, he heard the crash, he said.
“Police officers responded to the scene very quickly,” he said.
The trooper said he was unsure what Nensy and Anakeneto were arguing about. “We are still trying to sort out the details,” he said. The ISP, with assistance from the Twin Falls Police Department, is still investigating the incident. He said he didn’t anticipate charges being filed against Guymon.
