On Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 3:35 am, the Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle rollover on the westbound 46 off ramp of Interstate 84. Usiel Rios, 23, of Boise, was driving a 2001 blue Ford Focus westbound on I84 when he took the 46 (Eagle) off ramp, lost control of the vehicle and rolled off the right shoulder. Rios' wife, Araceli Brito-Cardoso, 34, of Boise and their one year old daughter, Maria Rios-Cardoso, were in the back seat unrestrained and were ejected from the vehicle.

All three occupants were transported to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Usiel and Maria were treated and released from the hospital; while Araceli remains in the hospital with moderate injuries. Araceli was not wearing a seatbelt and Maria was not in a child safety restraint. Alcohol may be involved in the crash.

The Idaho State Police were assisted at the scene by Meridian Police Department and Ada County Fire and Paramedics. The crash is still under investigation.
