Eagle, ID – Driver Hurt in Semi-Truck Crash on Hwy 16 at MP 102.5

Posted by Attorneys of Idaho | Jun 11, 2024 | 0 Comments

Eagle, ID (June 11, 2024) – Troopers with the Idaho State Police (ISP) are investigating a semi-truck collision and rollover that closed Highway 16 to through traffic for approximately four hours on Tuesday, June 11.

Police said at approximately 11:00 a.m., a 63-year-old semi-truck driver from Nampa was involved in a crash with at least two other vehicles, per news footage from the scene. Shortly thereafter, the truck rolled on its side and blocked all north and southbound lanes at milepost 102.5 near Eagle. The driver was brought to the hospital via ambulance, while others were assessed by EMTs at the site. ISP provided no additional information regarding their injuries or conditions, however. An inquiry remains ongoing.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their complete recovery.

Trucking Collisions in Idaho

Millions of semi-trucks and big rigs traverse America's roadways at any given time, particularly given the rise of online commerce and global shipments in the modern economy. Unfortunately, around 159,000 individuals were hurt in truck-related incidents in one recent year alone, with 5,000 of them losing their lives. A typical semi-truck weighs more than 10,000 pounds. Large trucks have bigger blind spots and need more time to stop than vehicles. Add in human error from drivers, who often put in lengthy hours behind the wheel, and the possibility of disastrous crashes increases significantly.

You'll undoubtedly have many questions about the accident, injuries received, medical bills, and other expenditures if you or someone you know is in a trucking accident. These are some frequently asked questions about trucking accidents. After all, tractor-trailer and large truck accidents are typically much more serious than an average vehicle crash, so it's essential to have an advocate in the aftermath.
