Sgt. Scott Tulleners said Bost told police he was traveling through the area and had been walking on the roadside as far away from traffic as he could get. He was taken to Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise by ambulance, and was listed in fair condition Monday morning.

A passenger in Boerin's SUV, 23-year-old Brianna Boerin, was also taken to the hospital. She was treated and released, police say.

Tulleners said investigators determined that Boerin was under the influence of an intoxicating substance other than alcohol when he hit the pedestrian. A blood test was performed to determine what the substance is.
