On October 28, 2013 at approximately 4:15 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a property damage crash at Caldwell Automotive at 50 E Frontage Road in Caldwell. Narciso Ferreira, 58, of Nampa, was eastbound on the onramp for I-84 at milepost 27 in a 2003 Freightliner semi. Ferreira lost control of the semi, fishtailed, and went off the shoulder on the right side. The semi went through a grassy area, through a chain link fence, and impacted the Caldwell Automotive building. The semi came to rest inside the building. There was a mechanic working in the garage, but neither he nor Ferreira were injured in the crash.

There was extensive damage to the building, as well as damage to two vehicles parked at the business. The eastbound onramp was blocked for approximately one hour while grass and sod were cleaned out of the lane of travel. Ferreira was wearing his seatbelt. This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
