Press Release – Bicycle Versus Bicycle Crash Victim Life Flighted

On Sunday, May 15, 2022, at approximately 2:00 a.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a bicycle versus bicycle collision on the bike path near Warm Springs Rd. in Ketchum, Idaho.

Crash scene investigation determined that Cole Ross Wells, age 33 of Hailey, Idaho was riding his bicycle southeast on the bike path headed into Ketchum from Warm Springs with his headlamp light on when an oncoming vehicle with its headlights on made it difficult to see. Wells collided with Reed Spencer Stokes, age 31 also of Hailey, Idaho, who was riding his bicycle without a light northwest on the bike path. The riders clipped handlebars as they attempted to pass each other, sending both Wells and Stokes to the ground.

 Neither rider was wearing a helmet. Stokes was transported via ground ambulance to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center and later by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise, Idaho with serious injuries. Wells declined medical treatment for a minor injury.
