Police investigate 2 Connector crashes

BOISE - Idaho State Police investigated two crashes that happened at two consecutive exits and within about a half hour of each other Wednesday afternoon on the eastbound Connector.

The first happened at around 3:27 p.m. at the Franklin Road off-ramp.

Police said Mariah Raley, 21, of Kuna, was driving a 2005 Toyota Scion and took the exit. She drove out of the travel lane, hit the left jersey barrier, struck the right jersey barrier and then ended up in the travel lane.

Raley, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center.

The exit ramp was blocked for about a half hour after this crash, which is still being investigated.

The other crash happened at around 3:52 p.m. near the Curtis Road exit.

Police said Dustin Black, 41, of Meridian was driving a 2005 Ford Ranger, didn't yield for slowing traffic and swerved to the left to avoid a collision. 

Black hit and bounced off the median barrier, then struck a 2000 Lincoln Navigator. 

Jesus Herrera Rivera, 46, of Boise was driving the Navigator. 

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts.

ISP dispatch said they didn't believe that either Rivera or Black were transported to a hospital.  

The left two lanes of eastbound I-184 were blocked for about 20 minutes.
