The Idaho State Police were called to slide-offs on the Interstate 84 as well.

ISP, Sgt. Keith Thompson said, drivers should be cautious while driving near semi trucks.

"Semis usually travel faster in the snow than a car can because of their weight but people aren't slowing down," Thompson said. "When semi pulls around you, you might want to slow down a little bit," he said.

Thompson said no one got hurt as well.
