At approximately 8:28 a.m. on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle, injury crash at the intersection of SH19 and Munn Ave. in Canyon County, approximately 3.5 miles west of Caldwell.

A 24-year-old male from Caldwell was southbound on Munn Ave. in a 2012 Kenworth pulling a single trailer. It was stopped at the stop sign, prepared to make a left turn onto SH19. A 22-year-old man from Boise was westbound on SH19 in a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser.

The Kenworth semi made a left turn onto SH19. Due to fog in the area, there was low visibility. The Chrysler struck the side of the semi-trailer. Both vehicles came to rest in the intersection. All lanes of travel were blocked for approximately one hour. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelt.

The driver of the Chrysler was transported to a local hospital by ground ambulance.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
