On June 25, 2011 at 10:20 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a minor injury crash involving a semi truck that rolled east of Mountain Home.

Jared W. Dibben, 22 of Fordland, MO, was driving eastbound on I84 near mile marker 105 in a 2010 Freightliner pulling a Great Dane trailer when he drifted off the left shoulder and into the median. Dibben overcorrected causing the semi tractor and trailer to overturn coming to rest on the driver's side.

Dibben and his passenger, Reta K. Weaver, 63 of Irving, TX, sustained minor injuries and were both transported by ground ambulance to Elmore Medical Center. Dibben was wearing his seatbelt. Weaver was in the cab�s sleeper at the time of the crash.

The left lane of travel eastbound on I84 at mile marker 105 will be blocked for about four or five hours while the towing company works to upright the semi truck.

Idaho State Police Corporal Hedges was assisted at the scene by Trooper Jussel, Elmore County Deputies and EMS, as well as the Idaho Department of Transportation.
