Two people were hospitalized Friday afternoon after a rollover crash on Interstate 84 in Boise, Idaho State Police said.

ISP investigated the crash at about 3:50 p.m. between the Maple Grove Road and Five Mile Road overpasses.

Here's what investigators say happened:

• Alicia Nunez-Baeza, 44, of Meridian, was westbound in a 2008 Pontiac G6 when she encountered slow traffic and swerved to the left to avoid hitting the car in front of her.

• After losing control of her car, Nunez-Baeza then veered to the right, across all five lanes of travel, and hit a 2007 Jeep Wrangler, driven by Kelli Hughes, 39, of Star.

• Nunez-Baeza then collided with the barriers on the north side of the road and overturned.

Nunez-Baeza and her passenger, Jose Baeza-Nunez, 21, of Meridian were taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Both were wearing their seatbelts, ISP said. The extent of their injuries was unknown.
