IDAHO STATE POLICE NEWS RELEASE

The truck drifted across the median fogline and struck the median barrier immediately east of the overpass. The truck then struck the steel guardrail on the overpass, destroying the guardrail across the overpass and then striking the concrete face on the west side of the overpass. The tractor/trailer then crashed into the median barrier again, jacknifing and bursting into flames. The truck was hauling compressed rolls of paper. The flames and debris closed both eastbound and westbound travel lanes. The driver, Mark Phares, and the co-driver, John Miller, were pronounced dead at the scene. The eastbound and westbound lanes were completely blocked for 4.5 hours. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
