On September 17, 2019 approximately 1815 hours, Idaho State Police responded to a crash involving a Latah County Sheriff unit and a semi truck with trailer on State Highway 8 near milepost 16, east of Troy, Idaho. Both vehicles were traveling eastbound when the crash occurred. The semi (a 2000 Peterbuilt tractor with grain trailer) was attempting to make a U-turn while the Latah County Sheriff unit (a 2016 Ford Explorer) was responding with lights and sirens activated to an incident. The Latah County Sheriff unit was unable to slow down and avoid the semi. Both Latah County Deputies were transported to Gritman Medical Center, Moscow, Idaho with minor injuries. The semi truck driver was treated and released at the scene. Investigation is still pending.
