***Final Update***

On Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 at 8:41 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a three vehicle non-injury crash eastbound I184 near milepost 2 at Curtis. Jamie Escarzaga, 57, of Nampa, was traveling eastbound in the number 3 lane in a dump truck pulling a flat bed trailer loaded with a Bobcat. A vehicle in front of Escarzaga braked hard and changed lanes. Escarzaga lost control of his vehicle, went into the number 2 lane and struck a 2013 Ford Fusion driven by Stephanie Brown, 22, of Nampa. Esarzaga's vehicle then struck a 2007 Jeep Compass driven by Sunrise Ayers, 34, from Meridian. Escaraga's trailer overturned blocking two and a half lanes of travel.

Escaraga, Brown, and Ayers were all wearing seatbelts. Lanes were blocked for 3 hours. This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
