*****Update***** US95 at milepost 312.2 is now open.

The Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash that occurred on November 16, 2017 at 6:32 pm. Joshua McGowan (38yoa / Florence, TX) was travelling southbound on US95 at milepost 312.2 in a 2010 Peterbilt semi-tractor, pulling a trailer loaded with lumber. The vehicle was travelling too fast for the roadway and conditions, causing it to overturn, losing its load of lumber. Most of the lumber came to a stop blocking the southbound US95 ramp at the bottom of the Lewiston hill. McGowan was transported to St. Josephs Regional Medical Center. The crash caused approximately 100 gallons of fuel to spill. The Region two hazmat team cleaned the spill. The driver was wearing his seatbelt. The roadway is still blocked at this time.
