On Tuesday, March 6, 2012, at 12:44 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 84 at the 183 mile marker, near the Kimberly exit. Mark Miller, 37, from Burley, was traveling east in a Honda Accord when for unknown reasons he veered into the median. Miller over-corrected causing the vehicle to roll and come to rest on its top in the middle of both westbound lanes. After Miller exited the vehicle, the Honda was struck by a semi driven by William Fuhrer, 70, of Byron, CA.

Both lanes of travel were blocked for approximately 2 hours. There were no injuries and both drivers were wearing seatbelts.

Roads were dry and clear and alcohol is believed to be a factor. The crash is being investigated by Trooper McConnell.
