On Monday, May 14, 2012 at approximately 7:04 am, the Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle crash involving a commercial vehicle. John Taylor, 43, of Hansen was eastbound on US30 at milepost 214, near Twin Falls, in a semi tractor hauling a milk tanker, when for unknown reasons the vehicle went off the right shoulder of the highway. Taylor overcorrected the vehicle causing it to overturn and spill 6,000 gallons of milk. Taylor was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. Taylor was wearing his seatbelt and alcohol is not a factor in the crash. The road was blocked eastbound for 3 hours during the investigation.

The crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
