On Friday, February 26, 2016, at approximately 4:35 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a three vehicle crash, westbound on Interstate 84 at the Garrity off ramp.

Casey Vanblaricom, 30, of Post Falls, was attempting to exit at the Garrity off ramp in a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon, when traffic came to a stop in front of him. Vanblaricom's vehicle collided with a 1995 Chevy S10 pickup, driven by Cameron Hand, 17, of Nampa. Upon impact, Hand's vehicle traveled across the westbound lanes of the interstate, and collided head on with a 2016 Ford F150 pickup, driven by Arlo Decker, 66, of New Plymouth.

Hand was transported by ground ambulance to St. Alphonsus in Nampa. The passengers of the Ford were transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's in Meridian. All occupants were wearing their seatbelts. Two lanes were blocked for approximately 45 minutes while crews worked to clean up the scene. The crash is under investigation by Idaho State Police.
