A 19-year-old woman listening to her GPS made an unsafe lane change that ended with her car in the catch pond at the Flying Wye Friday afternoon, according to Idaho State Police.
Traveling along the on-ramp that leads from I-84 to the I-184 Connector, Kristen Rush, of Centralia, Wash., tried to move over too quickly for the Franklin Road exit, hit a truck, went down the hill and landed in the pond, police said.
Rush was driving a 2014 Honda Civic eastbound when she hit a 1997 Kenworth service truck, driven by Richard Howard, 33, of Caldwell.
Rush and another woman who was a passenger were able to get out uninjured before the car submerged. Both women were wearing their seatbelts. Dive crews pulled the car out of the pond at the junctions of interstates 84 and 184.

One lane of the ramp from Cole Road to eastbound I-184 was blocked by emergency vehicles for more than an hour.
ISP, Boise Police, Boise Fire Department and Ada County Paramedics all responded. Emergency vehicles are blocking the westbound onramp leading from Cole Road to the inbound Connector, according to ISP.
