Idaho State Police said the man was struck by an SUV Wednesday night on the eastbound side of I-184.

BOISE, Idaho — A 20-year-old man died after stepping into traffic on Interstate 184 ("Connector") near the Curtis Road exit, Idaho State Police said Wednesday night.

Ada County Coroner Richard Riffle on Thursday afternoon identified the man as Kobe Stanard from Kuna. Information sent out by ISP Wednesday night and included in an earlier version of this story said the man, then unnamed, was from Boise.

According to ISP, Stanard stepped into traffic in the eastbound lanes and was struck by a 2023 Chevrolet Traverse SUV driven by a 41-year-old woman from Nampa. Stanard died at the scene.

ISP is investigating the crash, which occurred at about 6:18 p.m. Police have not said if the driver of the SUV was cited or if she will face charges.

The eastbound Connector was blocked for about three hours Wednesday night while emergency personnel investigated.

The coroner said Thursday that rulings on the cause and manner of death are pending.
