No evidence from an investigation of the crash pointed to drug or alcohol, reckless activity or other safety lapse serious enough to warrant a citation, Ada County Sheriff's spokesman Patrick Orr said Monday.
Orr said investigators were " not exactly sure what happened" in the moments before the crash, which was reported about 3:20 p.m. Thursday at milepost 3 on Bogus Basin Road. A pickup truck driven by a 60-year-old Boise man went over the edge and rolled approximately 200 feet down the embankment. A 49-year-old Nampa man was a passenger, Orr told the Statesman.
Deputies, firefighters and paramedics responded to the scene and removed the driver and passenger from the smashed truck. They carried the men, who were conscious, to a lot where emergency service providers picked them up and took them to a local hospital. Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
