On Wednesday, February 5, 2014, at approximately 9:35 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 84 at milepost 53, involving a commercial freightliner. The driver of the semi was headed eastbound on Interstate 84 when he drifted out of the lane of travel and hit the concrete median barrier and a traffic sign. The semi continued along the barrier, under the Vista overpass, and struck another traffic sign before it came to a stop. Witnesses arrived on scene to find the driver between the driver and passenger seats with no pulse. The driver, whose identity Idaho State Police are still trying to confirm, was transported to St. Luke's via ground ambulance. A medical condition may be involved in this crash.
