Injury Crash US95 at mile post 317

On June 5th, at 7:26 AM, a gray 2003 GMC Sierra pickup driven by Crystal Ball (48 year old female of Genessee, ID) entered US95 on Spur Rd, and failed to yield to northbound traffic. Anna Odash (32 year old female of Pullman), driving a black 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, impacted Ball on the driver's side rear quarter panel. After the initial impact, Odash's vehicle rolled backwards and came to a stop approximately 30 yards from the original impact area. Odash exited the vehicle to check on Ball. Odash's vehicle was then struck from the rear by Dale Alexander (63 year old male of Kendrick, ID) driving a 2008 Kenworth truck. Odash's vehicle re-impacted Ball's vehicle and came to rest approximately 20 yards north of Ball's vehicle. Both lanes of US95 were temporarily closed, then and one lane reopened within 30 minutes of Idaho State Police arrival. All drivers were treated and released on scene by Lewiston Ambulance. Ball was cited for failing to yield for the right of way. Investigation continues.
