On Tuesday April 17, 2012 at approximately 12:27 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a non-injury commercial vehicle rollover crash on eastbound State Highway 50 at milepost 3.6, just south of the Hansen Bridge. Joshua Stallings, 37, of Weiser, ID, was driving a 2011 Peterbuilt tractor pulling a flatbed trailer with roofing material, when an unidentified vehicle turned in front of Stallings vehicle from the 3900 North Road. Stallings swerved to avoid the vehicle causing the trailer to overturn losing its contents on the roadway. Both lanes of travel were blocked for approximately two hours while crews cleaned up the material.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor and seatbelts were worn at the time of the crash. The unidentified vehicle has not been located at this time. Anyone with information about the second vehicle is encouraged to call.

The crash is under investigation by Trooper Comorosky.
