On May 30, 2014, at 9:45 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a two vehicle injury crash on US Highway 95 near milepost 48, in front of the MotorVu Drive-In in Parma.

Elena Solis, 21, of Fruitland, was stopped in the southbound lane of US Highway 95, waiting to turn into the MotorVu Drive-In in a 2004 Mitsubishi Gallant. Edward Wampler, 75, of Tipp City, Ohio, was traveling south in a 2008 GMC pickup. Wampler failed to stop in time, and the pickup collided with the back of the Mitsubishi.

All occupants were properly restrained with seatbelts and a child safety seat. Highway 95 was blocked for approximately two and a half hours while crews worked to clear the scene.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
