On Sunday, December 11, 2016, at 12:02 am, Idaho State Police, Canyon County Sheriffs' Office, and the Nampa Police Department investigated approximately eleven crashes on I84 eastbound and westbound between mile marker 36, Franklin Exit, and mile marker 41, Black Cat Road.

Two of those crashes involved Idaho State Police patrol cars:

At 12:21 am, an Idaho State Police trooper was responding to a non-injury crash westbound on I84 at mile marker 36 when a 1998 Mercury Villager, driven by Allan H. Ische, 65, of Nampa, slid into the patrol car. The Mercury then hit a Pontiac G6, driven by Rachel Robb, 40, of Nyssa, OR. There were no injuries.

At 12:49 am, an Idaho State Police trooper was stationary on the right shoulder westbound on I84 at mile marker 36 investigating a crash. A 2014 Nissan Versa, driven by Rachel Carter, 36, of Caldwell, was traveling westbound and sideswiped a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. Upon impact, Carter's vehicle struck the guardrail and the rear left corner of the unoccupied patrol vehicle. Carter was taken into custody by the Nampa Police Department for suspected Driving Under the Influence. The driver of the Caravan, Jenna E. Morris, 35, of Fruitland, was not injured. The trooper was not injured.
