Shoshone Semi Driver Involved in 4-Vehicle Crash – Twin Falls Times

NAMPA – A Shoshone semi driver was involved in a four-vehicle crash Tuesday on Interstate 84.

At about 1 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated the crash on eastbound I-84 at milepost 35 in Nampa.

Daryl Anderson, 66, of Shoshone, was eastbound in a 1979 Peterbuilt semi pulling a trailer. Beverly Emmert, 54, in a 2008 Honda Pilot; Matthew Trout, 27, of Grants Pass, Ore., in a 2009 Chevrolet Expedition; and Burt Landers, 45, of Caldwell, in a 2013 Dodge Avenger, were also eastbound.

“Traffic ahead of Anderson was slowing down, and although Anderson tried to stop in time to avoid a collision, he was unable to do so,” an ISP release said.

Anderson struck the left rear corner of Emmert’s vehicle, which was pushed into the driver’s side door of Trout’s vehicle. The semi came to rest in the median; a headlight came off and struck the back of Landers’ vehicle.

Emmert was transported to St. Alphonsus in Nampa by ground ambulance. All drivers were wearing their seat belts, ISP said. The westbound lanes were blocked for about 20 minutes.

The crash is under investigation by ISP.
