Multiple People Injured in Wrecks in Cassia County
DECLO, Idaho (KLIX)-At least nine people had to be taken to area hospitals following multiple crashes Monday evening on the interstate and nearby highway in Cassia County during a major storm. According to Idaho State Police, the nine people were all taken to nearby hospitals by ground ambulance. ISP said troopers investigated six crashes on Interstate 84 and State Highway 81 and Cassia County Sheriff's deputies responded to 17 crashes. A springtime snowstorm blew across southern Idaho Monday afternoon into the evening with blowing and drifting snow that created low visibility and forced the closure of the interstate. The roadway was not reopened until around 1 a.m. Tuesday. ISP said multiple agencies assisted with the calls including the Cassia County Extraction, Idaho Transportation Department, Declo Fire Department, Malta Ambulance, Life Run Medic 1 and Medic 2, and the Declo QRU.
