Idaho State Police investigators say traffic on the highway was slowing for congestion before the crash.
Winstead was traveling east on the interstate. His vehicle struck a Ford Ranger driven by Hurtado-Mohring, police said.
Hurtado-Mohring’s vehicle then struck two other vehicles. The drivers of those vehicles were identified as Caldwell residents Chanelle Youren, 22, and R. Gonzales-Rodriguez, 47.
The crash is under investigation. No information was immediately available on citations.
