On Friday, August 14, 2015, at approximately 2:38 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a five-vehicle, property damage crash westbound I-84 just before the 44 off-ramp.

David Foruria, 54, of Emmett, was westbound on I-84 in a 1987 Ford Bronco. Leah Clements, 55, of Fruitland, was ahead of the Bronco in a 2008 Toyota Camry. Kholbek Boynazarov, 19, of Meridian, was ahead of the Camry in a 2010 Dodge Charger. Sharon Anitok, 54, of Boise, was ahead of the Charger in a 2009 Subaru Forester.

When traffic ahead slowed, Foruria braked, but the Bronco struck the rear of the Camry. The Camry then struck the Charger, which struck the Subaru. Mallory Dardis, 19, of Nampa, was behind the Bronco in a 1998 Ford Taurus. After the Bronco struck the Camry, the Taurus struck the rear of the Bronco.

All occupants were wearing their seatbelts. The right lane was blocked for approximately one hour.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
