Final Update

On September 24, 2013, at approximately 12:37 P.M., Erika Shelly was driving a green Mercury Mountaineer east on Interstate 84 near milepost 42 when she attempted to make a lane change. As she entered that lane, she observed a vehicle already in the lane rapidly approaching her. Shelly steered to the left and lost control of her vehicle. The vehicle then ran off the right shoulder of the road, where it struck a cement Jersey barrier. The vehicle then rolled once and came to a rest on its tires in the lanes of travel. Shelly was transported to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise by ambulance.

Two of the four eastbound lanes of I-84 were blocked for approximately one hour.
