ISP identifies man thrown from vehicle in eastbound I-84 wreck

July 2, 2013 

A 34-year-old Montana man was hospitalized Tuesday after he was ejected from his vehicle during a crash on Interstate 84, according to Idaho State Police.

Justin E. Mann of Butte, Mont., was transported by ground ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. The crash occurred at about 2:30 p.m. on eastbound Interstate 84 at milepost 67, near the port of entry.

ISP said Mann was driving a 1993 Toyota Camry in the center lane, just as a semi truck and trailer was traveling in the far right lane at the end of the ramp from the weigh station. When Mann moved his vehicle from the center lane to the left lane of the highway, it struck a 2007 Toyota Corolla in the left lane, police said.

After colliding with the Corolla, Mann lost control of his vehicle. The Camry went off the road and struck an embankment. Mann, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle.

Mann was in stable condition when he was transported, police said. His current condition is unknown.

Boisean Nancy E. Farnsworth, 54, was the driver of the Corolla. She was not injured in the crash. She was wearing a seat belt, police said.

The left lane of travel was blocked for a little over an hour while crews worked to remove the wreckage.
