BOISE – A three vehicle accident on eastbound 1-84 blocked traffic in both directions for approximately two hours Saturday.
A vehicle attempting to merge onto the freeway from Orchard did not check oncoming traffic.
As a result, the driver of a vehicle that would have been hit managed to stop on the freeway to avoid an accident. A second vehicle was also able to stop, but a semi was not able to brake in time and slammed into the back of the second vehicle, which slid into the first.
The driver of one vehicle was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police are investigating.
