GOODING COUNTY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — UPDATE at 2:40 p.m.: Idaho State Police say the crash in Wendell killed one. They say a 54-year-old woman from Wendell was driving westbound I-84 when she collided with a Freightliner traveling eastbound.

Travel was blocked for around six hours in the eastbound lane and was blocked for around three hours in the westbound lane. The woman succumbed to her injuries on the scene. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts.


Traffic between Wendell and Bliss is no longer being impacted after a crash involving semi-trucks and three cars early Wednesday morning.

At approximately 6:50 a.m., KMVT received reports of several cars sliding off the road along I-84, as well as traffic beginning to back up along the Interstate.

When KMVT reached the scene of the accident, we found two semi-trucks off from the center of the road. 300 yards down the road was another semi-truck, with its front end crushed, and a car close by was also smashed and split in two.
