Mitchell was flown to Saint Alphonsus on Friday evening. He was no longer listed as a patient there Monday.

The crash pushed the Steiners’ pickup into the intersection, where it hit a 2016 Nissan Frontier, Idaho State Police said. All three vehicles then collided with a 2005 Ford Mustang. The driver of the Nissan, Arturo Leon Avila, 58, his passenger Lilia Leon-Vega, 51; and one of two juveniles in the car, all of Twin Falls, were taken to St. Luke’s on Friday evening but were released by Monday, a hospital spokesperson said.

Police said Monday the crash is still under investigation.
