Treasure Valley, ID – Mtn Home Fwy Site of Injury Collision, Fire at Simco Rd

Posted by Attorneys of Idaho | Jun 09, 2024 | 0 Comments

Treasure Valley, ID (June 9, 2024) – Idaho State Police are investigating a vehicle collision that occurred on the westbound side of the Mountain Home Freeway on Saturday evening, June 8.

According to local authorities, the incident occurred around 7:15 p.m., just before the Simco Road exit. At least two vehicles collided, causing a fire and resulting in the dispatch of EMTs with fire rescue units. At least one person was injured in the collision and taken to a neighboring hospital, though it's unclear how many victims total were hurt. For about an hour, nearly all westbound lanes were closed. The Idaho Transportation Department and the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office provided support to the Idaho State Police, but officers are still investigating.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.

Traveling on the open road may be enjoyable and pleasant, especially in beautiful Idaho. However, a nice daily commute or weekend trip can quickly become devastating if a careless driver causes an auto accident. Adding insult to injury, all too many insurance companies take advantage of victims. It tends to be difficult to completely recoup for the time, worry, grief, and suffering that you and your family endured as a result of the accident without the assistance of a seasoned auto accident attorney.

Navigating the ensuing legal process after a traumatic event such as an auto accident can be frustratingly complex. Following an accident, you'll need to take your time selecting the best doctor to assess your injuries, and you'll also need to have the financial means to cover the cost of care. Sometimes, even when you have insurance, the copays and deductibles can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful financially.
