A Pepsi truck jackknifed and slid into Mores Creek in Boise County Wednesday morning.
The Boise County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened on Idaho 21 around 8:18 a.m. The semi truck went into the creek at milepost 22, near Robie Creek.
The truck driver was not hurt in the crash, and was able to make it out of the cab to safety.
