On Friday, October 24, 2014, at approximately 3:32 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle crash westbound I-84 at milepost 189, 5 miles west of Hazelton. Gaylen Bingham, 66, of Burley, was westbound in a 2013 Dodge Ram pulling a cargo trailer. Armando Parra, 41, of Notus, was driving behind Bingham in a 1997 Freightliner semi pulling a trailer. Bingham slowed for traffic in a construction zone. Parra failed to slow down, and struck Bingham's vehicle.

Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. Neither driver was transported to the hospital. The lane was blocked for approximately ten minutes. The crash occurred in a one-lane construction zone, so traffic was delayed due to the construction.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
