BOISE -- Idaho State Police say four people were taken to local hospitals after a multi-car crash on Interstate 84 Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened at 2:24 p.m. in eastbound lanes of I-84, just west of the Maple Grove overpass.

Investigators say 63-year-old Richard Hersh of Sweet was driving in a 1993 Jeep Cherokee and swerved into a lane occupied by 27-year-old Jaime Hastings of Boise, who was in a 2007 Saturn Ion. When he noticed the other vehicle Hersh swerved back into his own lane, but lost control of his SUV.

At that point, Hastings crossed into Hersh's lane and was struck by his Jeep.

Hastings was taken by ambulance to St. Luke's Medical Center in Boise. His condition is unknown.

Hersh and his two passengers, Brenna Pratt-Hersh, 21, of Sweet, and William Ashton, 44, of Emmett, were both taken by ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Their conditions were not released.

Police say all people involved in this accident were wearing seatbelts.

The two right lanes of I-84 were closed for about an hour due to the crash.

The crash is under investigation.
