Idaho State Police seek witnesses from two separate fatal crashes

Idaho State Police are seeking witnesses for two separate traffic accidents that resulted in deaths.

Police are looking for a possible witness to a fatal crash that occurred 6 a.m. Wednesday on Robinson Road and Locust Lane. A pickup truck driver may have witnessed the crash that involved a 2001 Chevrolet Lumina and a 2009 Yamaha WR450F motorcycle. The driver of the motorcycle, Paul Mackrill, 44, of Nampa, was driving south on Robinson Road when he struck the driver’s side of the Lumina, which was pulling out from Locust Lane. Mackrill died at the scene.

Another witness to the crash, a driver of a cement truck, told police about the driver of a silver Dodge diesel pickup who may have passed during the accident. The pickup was hauling an extra fuel cell in the bed of the pickup and may have had damage to the front end from a previous accident. The driver was only a witness and not involved or the cause of the crash, police said.

Police are also seeking witnesses to another fatal crash that took place on Interstate 84 east of Boise, near the Port of Entry early Sunday morning.

Winters Wareagle, 23, of Garden City was trying to deal with car troubles and on the pavement in the right lane when Patrick Musgrove, 28 of Meridian, driving a 2003 Toyota Maxtrix hit Wareagle around 3:50 a.m.

Musgrove was later charged with felony manslaughter.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call ISP at 208-846-7550.
