On December 17, 2017, at approximately 7:05 p.m. the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle injury crash westbound Interstate 84 near milepost one, in Payette County.

Ryon Sharette, 35, of Salt Lake City, UT was driving westbound on Interstate 84 in a 2016 Freightliner pulling double trailers. Matias Rogel, 33, of Ontario, OR was also driving westbound in a 2002 GMC Yukon pulling a flatbed trailer. Sharette struck the rear of Rogel's trailer. The Yukon rolled and came to rest on the roadway. The Freightliner went into the median where the rear trailer tipped onto its side, reentered the roadway and came to rest in the right lane of travel.

Rogel was transported by ground ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Ontario, OR.

The westbound lanes of travel were blocked for approximately six hours. The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
