On November 20, 2013, at approximately 6:43 A.M., Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle injury crash on State Highway 21 near milepost 11, just before the Lucky Peak Dam turn-off.

Richard Lovan, 36, of Boise, ID, was driving north on State Highway 21 in a 2003 Nissan Frontier. Lovan struck a boulder in the north lane of travel. The vehicle drove over the boulder and came to rest in the middle of the highway. Lovan was wearing a seatbelt.

Lovan was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Medical Center in downtown Boise.

State Highway 21 was blocked for approximately one hour due to the crash. The Idaho Transportation Department is still blocking the road way due to multiple rock slides in the area. However, they have a detour in place to allow traffic through the area.
