Idaho State Police (ISP) responded to a ten vehicle pileup in a construction zone on I-84 west of Mountain Home on Sunday afternoon.
The crash was reported at 2:12 p.m. on October 1 at mile marker 78 on I-84 Elmore County, Idaho.
ISP says that a 36 year old Washington resident was operating a 2015 Volvo westbound on I-84 when he “failed to stop in time for slowed traffic approaching a construction zone.”
The semi truck struck nine other vehicles, including a 2022 Freightliner semi-tractor pulling a commercial trailer driven by a 74 year old male from Boise.
The 2022 Freightliner driver and a woman in a Kia were both transported by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
ISP says traffic was backed up for about 4 and a half hours as crews responded to the crash.
This crash remains under investigation by the Idaho State Police
