April 28, 2013 

Katherine S. Clark was taken by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Meridian after a two-car crash on Interstate 84 under the Locust Grove overpass Sunday, according to Idaho State Police. No information was released about the extent of her injuries.

Clark and the other driver involved in the crash — a 17-year-old from Caldwell — were both wearing the seat belts. The teen driver was not hospitalized.

The crash was reported at about 11:30 a.m., and it blocked traffic on the highway for about 90 minutes.

The vehicles were traveling east on I-84. The teen was in a Subaru Legacy, while Clark was in a Dodge Avenger.

Police say the teen, who was behind Clark, lost control of her Subaru when the front driver's side of her vehicle impacted the passenger side of the Dodge.

The impact of the collision sent both vehicles into the median barrier. The Subaru came to rest facing traffic, while the Dodge came to rest on the shoulder of the road. Debris from the crash covered three lanes of travel, blocking traffic.

Idaho State Police is investigating the crash.
