On Saturday, March 6, 2010, at approximately 1:09 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a three-vehicle crash that occurred eastbound on Interstate 84 at milepost 52, near the Orchard exit. Gary Wilson, 56 years old, of Boise, driving a gold 2004 Toyota Tundra, attempted to merge into traffic as a green 1997 Toyota Corolla, driven by Hannah Barnes, 16 years old, of Boise, slowed due to traffic conditions. A semi, driven by Mark Livers, 40 years old, of Randle, Washington, was following both vehicles and was unable to stop before striking Wilson's vehicle, pushing the pickup into Barnes' vehicle. Barnes was transported via ambulance to St. Luke's Boise with non-life threatening injuries. This crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police at this time. Idaho State Police were assisted by Ada County EMS and fire crews.
