An Idaho State Police Trooper responded to a citizen's call about a vehicle speeding and driving dangerously on eastbound I-84 near the Flying Wye at Approximately 1:31 p.m. The Trooper located the vehicle, a 2001 blue Infiniti, and witnessed the driver make an unsafe lane change. When the Trooper activated his emergency lights and attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver failed to stop.
