Two people died in a crash Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 84 near the Juniper Rest area.

Idaho State Police said a Winnebago motor home towing another vehicle drove westbound when the driver went off the left shoulder, over corrected and lost control of the vehicle.

The Winnebago overturned and came to rest on the right shoulder where it caught fire, causing a small brush fire, which was quickly contained.

Both the driver and the passenger died.

Idaho State Police are investigating further before they release the names.
