On November 13, 2013, at approximately 6:12 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle injury crash on Garrity Boulevard, at the bottom of the eastbound I-84 Exit 38 onramp.

Hernandez-Avila was transported to St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Nampa by ground ambulance. Hyde was not transported. It is unknown at this time if seat belts were in use. The eastbound onramp was blocked for approximately an hour and a half. This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
