Emergency responders on Monday morning responded to a two-car crash in Eagle that left four people with serious injuries and in need of extrication from their vehicles, according to Ada County emergency dispatchers.
The crash occurred at State Street and Park Lane near Eagle High School around 7:45 a.m. Police say initial information indicates that a Nissan passenger vehicle was eastbound on State Street/Idaho 44 and attempted to turn left onto Park Lane. A pickup truck traveling westbound on 44 collided with the car in the intersection.
Shortly before 8 a.m., first responders said one person was in cardiac arrest. In a tweet around 8:30 a.m., the Ada County Sheriff’s Office said “emergency crews had to remove some people from wreckage of (a) badly damaged car.”
All four of the extrications were from the passenger vehicle, according to ACSO spokesman Patrick Orr.
They were transported to local hospitals, according to ACSO. No other information on their conditions was immediately available.
Orr said westbound traffic was still being diverted around 9 a.m. Monday. He urged motorists to avoid the area if possible.
