6 injured in crash near Marsing

MARSING - Six people were taken to local hospitals Saturday night after a crash involving a car and a truck pulling a horse trailer.

It happened just after 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of Marsing and Riverside roads.

Police say 29-year-old Mohammad Timor Shah was driving north on Riverside Road when he failed to stop at a stop sign. The car went into the intersection where it was hit on the driver's side by a truck traveling east on Marsing Road.

The drivers of both vehicles and four passengers in the truck, including a juvenile, were taken to area hospitals. One passenger, 75-year-old Salvador Herrera, was taken by air ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. The other injured passengers were taken by ground ambulance to either Saint Alphonsus or West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell.

The passenger in Shah's car was not injured.

The truck was hauling a horse trailer with two horses inside at the time of the crash. The impact sent the trailer onto its side, but both horses survived the crash.

Idaho State Police are investigating the crash. They say two of the injured passengers were not wearing seat belts, while everyone else was.

The road was blocked for more than two hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
