On Sunday, October 4, 2009, at approximately 9 am, a semi crash occurred at the Westbound I84 Franklin/City Center exit. While taking the exit, Jeremy Smalley of Wilsonville, Oregon, lost control and hit the jersey barrier on the left shoulder. Smalley overcorrected his Rite Aid Company Freightliner and the trailer spun out making it the lead unit. The semi then went across both lanes of travel onto the right shoulder where the cab hit the cement wall and both the cab and trailer were on their sides and separated. A seatbelt was worn and speed is a factor. Smalley was treated at released from St. Alphonsus with minor injuries. The crash is being investigated by Trooper Higley with assistance from Master Corporal Robertson and Boise City Police.
