I-84 Crash Near Jerome Closes Interstate For Hours
One person was injured after a crash on Interstate 84 near Jerome Sunday morning. It happened around 8 a.m. Police said 42 year old Chang-Yi Huang, of Brooklyn, NY was traveling in a tractor with a flatbed trailer hauling a load of 50-foot piping. Huang got distracted and drove off the roadway on the left shoulder. He came back onto the road before over-correcting. The piping shifted and came loose from the trailer, spilling onto the westbound lanes of I-84. Huang again left the roadway and drove through the median before coming to rest facing westbound in the eastbound lanes. Huang was taken to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls, where he was treated and released for minor injuries. He was wearing a seatbelt. The eastbound lanes were partially blocked for approximately four hours while the westbound lanes were completely blocked for around 5.5 hours.
