MARSING, Idaho (KLIX)-A truck hauling a load of onions toppled into the Snake River Tuesday near a small southwestern Idaho town sending two men to the hospital.
According to Idaho State Police, the driver of the overturned semi-truck, Miguel Hernandez, 58, of Caldwell, had to be flown by air ambulance to a Boise hospital while his passenger, Oscar Baez, 29, of Caldwell was first taken to a Caldwell hospital then later to a Boise hospital after the 3:07 p.m. crash on Lowell Road in Canyon County.
