Idaho State Police alert- A head-on collision between a semi-truck and a Ford pickup truck injured two people.

Boise, ID—A Monday morning, February 1, 2010 head-on collision between a semi-truck and a pickup truck left a man seriously injured. The pickup truck reportedly careened through the median of I-84 near mile marker 73, when a semi-truck that was traveling on the opposite side of the road slammed into the truck around 5:30 a.m., as reported by Mountain Home News.

According to the Idaho State Police, a 2002 Ford F350 driven by David P. Bowers, 53, of Boise was traveling westbound on I-84, when he lost control, drove into the median, and flipped one time before coming to a stop in the left lane on the eastbound side. His Ford was then hit by a tractor-trailer with a box trailer, driven by Timothy D. Martin, 41, of Boise, which then pushed the truck into the median. Responding emergency medical services (EMS) teams rushed Bowers by ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise for treatment of his serious injuries. A passenger in the truck, Jonathan E. Hanson, 43, of Emmett, was also taken by EMS ambulance to St. Alphonsus for treatment of “minor” injuries. The driver of the semi was not injured in the wreck. Police officials believe a combination of speed and the wet roads contributed to the wreck. All occupants were reportedly wearing seatbelts and alcohol did not appear to be a factor. At this time it was not reported if any citations were issued in connection with the crash.
