Katherine S. Clark, 22 of Nampa was driving eastbound on I84 east of Meridian Road in a 2008 Dodge Avenger. A 17-year-old female from Caldwell was traveling behind Clark in a 1993 Subaru Legacy. Both vehicles were traveling at speeds around 65 to 70 mph. The 17-year-old female lost control of her vehicle where the front driver side corner of the Subaru impacted the passenger side front corner of the Avenger. Upon impact, both vehicles struck the median barrier. The Subaru came to rest facing against traffic in the number three lane. The Dodge came to rest on the median shoulder of the road. Debris from the crash was spread across the three left lanes of travel and traffic was blocked for one and a half hours.

Clark was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Meridian. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. The 17-year-old female was not transported.
