HAILEY —A Wood River Valley woman is in critical condition after a crash on Idaho 75 north of Hailey.

About 9:20 p.m. Lindi D. Mattinson, 21, was southbound in a 2002 Honda Accord near Buttercup Road when she drove off the shoulder, overcorrected and crossed into oncoming traffic, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
