A Caldwell man and father of a 3-year-old boy was hit by a drunk driver. His story is horrifying and remarkable. His story is at the end of this article.


This, along with this recently published article by the Idaho State Journal announcing Idaho being the highest in the nation for traffic deaths.



Let’s take a look into it:

Now, there is a lot of speculation around why Idaho has seen such a spike in traffic deaths.   


Here’s what a few locals had to say about it:

Now, if you or someone you know has suffered from a similar incident and are FLOODED with medical bills, we may have some good news for you. It is possible to get those bills legally “forgiven” or “waived” by the government.    


And we’re going to show you how.    


Most people don’t know this, but most hospitals in America are non-profit.     


So what does that mean, you ask?     


Well, it means they legally must have a Charity Care Policy that requires them to forgive your bills if you fall into a certain category on their sliding scale.

There is a nonprofit that helps individuals do this. It’s called “Dollar For.” Please visit their website to see if you can get relief from your medical bills.
