Emergency crews start to cleanup the debris left by a pickup truck that veered off Bogus Basin Road and rolled over 100 feet before stopping Thursday Aug. 18, 2016 in Boise. Two people were transported by ambulance to a hospital in Boise.

Two people were taken to a local hospital Thursday after their pickup truck went off Bogus Basin Road and rolled an estimated 200 feet down a steep embankment, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office reports.

Neither have been identified, but the driver was a 60-year-old Boise man and the passenger was a 49-year-old Nampa man. No citations have been filed in the case, said ACSO spokesperson Patrick Orr.

Deputies, firefighters and paramedics responded to the scene, getting the people out of the smashed truck and carrying them to a nearby property where they were picked up for transport to a local hospital. Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, a sheriff’s office spokesman said.

The crash was reported about 3:20 p.m. at milepost 3 on Bogus Basin Road. Bogus Basin was briefly closed later that afternoon while a tow truck removed the wreckage. Information was not available Thursday evening on what caused the crash, who was in the vehicle and the extent of their injuries.

Rescuers reported that both people in the vehicle were conscious when emergency crews reached them.
