Shoshone, Idaho (KMVT) - Emergency crews responded to a one vehicle roll over about 3 miles west of Shoshone on Highway 26, as two men were thrown from a bucket truck.

According to Idaho State Police, it didn't appear they had been wearing seat belts.

The truck had been east bound when it came up on farm equipment going the same direction.

ISP Lt. Kevin Haight said, "Traveling at or close to the speed limit and realized too late that this was a slow moving implement of husbandry in front of them so the bucket truck swerved over into the west bound lane to try to avoid rear ending the farm tractor and as a result lost control and then ended up rolling."

One man was flown to Saint Luke's Magic Valley the other was taken to Gooding. ISP says the injuries did not appear to be life threatening.

Traffic in both directions had to be stopped for a while; charges are pending.
