Two separate accidents sent four people to the hospital and caused heavy traffic on the interstate today.

Idaho State Police responded to mile post 195 at around 10:20 this morning.

According to Sergeant Kevin Haight, a green Ford Mustang traveling westbound made contact with a semi-truck.

The driver of the Mustang then lost control and rolled into the median.

While officers were on scene, a pickup also going westbound drove up on the scene nearly hitting a patrol car, swerved and missed then rolled into the median-almost striking the vehicle from the first accident.

The female passenger in the truck was ejected and the male driver was trapped inside.

Haight says, "This is a classic example of what happens with inattentive driving. You are responsible of your vehicle and being in control of it at all times."

Four people including a young child were transported to the hospital with what appears to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the semi was uninjured.

The accidents remain under investigation.

Sergeant Haight reminds the public to obey the ‘move-over law’ anytime you see emergency vehicles.
