On Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at approximately 9:41 a.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a fatality crash eastbound I-84 at milepost 28 in Caldwell.

Guy Isaac, 57, of Nampa, was eastbound on I-84 at milepost 28 in a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. Part of the cargo in the back of the pickup fell out, landing in both lanes of travel. Isaac stopped the Silverado on the right shoulder and began removing debris from the roadway. The debris began causing traffic to back up in both lanes of travel.

Heather Lott, 36, of Caldwell, was eastbound on I-84 in a 2010 Ford Edge in the left lane of travel. Lott saw the traffic in front of her braking, and steered into the right lane to avoid a collision. Traffic was slowing in the right lane as well, so Lott steered onto the right shoulder, where the Ford struck Isaac. Isaac came to rest on the I-84 onramp; the Ford came to rest on the right shoulder of I-84.

Isaac succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the crash. Lott was wearing her seatbelt. Next of kin has been notified. The right lane of I-84 and the I-84 onramp were 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.
