A truck driver went off the right shoulder of Interstate 84, hit a guardrail, over-corrected and ended up going through a guardrail on the left side before striking a bridge abutment on the Mayfield-Orchard overpass east of Boise on Monday morning.

Segura and his passenger, Jose D. Brown, 33, also from Dallas, were taken by ambulance for treatment at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise.
One lane remained closed Monday afternoon and lanes on the overpass were narrowed, the Idaho Transportation Department reports.
