ISP responded to the crash on Interstate 84 at about 3:30 p.m. between the Hansen and Hazelton exits.

An ISP trooper on scene told us a semi-truck carrying a load of grape jam and juice went off the road and hit a semi-truck parked on the side of the road. The parked semi-truck hauled an empty trailer.

Lt. Robert Rausch said no one was injured, but the vehicles sustained significant damage. Westbound traffic was rerouted for at least an hour. ISP contacted the Idaho Transportation Department to help wash the slippery substance from the roadway.

Shortly after 4 p.m., a wrecker was en route to begin moving the commercial vehicles from the roadway.

A KMVT Local 11 News reporter at the scene said one lane of traffic opened at about 5:40 p.m. The reporter saw grape jam and juice among the crash debris.
