BOISE --Around 6:30 Monday night, Idaho State Police responded to an eight-vehicle crash on westbound Interstate 84 near Five Mile Road.

ISP says Maria Arredondo-Medina, 33, of Spokane Valley, Washington, was heading westbound in a 2000 Toyota Camry when she drifted into the lane of Daniella Emerson, 38, of Eagle, who was driving a 2010 Toyota Prius. She slowed down to avoid a collision with Arredondo-Medina.

While Emerson was slowing down, this caused a Kenworth Semi, being driving by Steven Bahmer, 50, of Boise to be hit by Robert Hale, 51, of Meridian who was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. The impacted results in Hale's Silverado to hit Bradley Glover, 32, of Nampa, who was driving a 2003 Ford Ranger.

Glover's truck then hit a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass driven by Michael Farrell, 49, of Boise.

Bahmer's car swerved to the right and struck Katie Moen, 30, of Caldwell's 2010 Chrysler Town and Country mini-van.

A little while later, Glover's truck was hit by a 1995 Peterbuilt, driven by Jerry Farr, 56, of Meridian.

Around 8:15 p.m. all westbound lanes were back open, after ISP had three lanes closed to investigate the crash.

Arredondo-Medina was cited for careless driving, and no one was transported to the hospital.
