The Ada County Sheriff's Office is investigating a crash that clogged traffic at the intersection of Chinden Boulevard and Locust Grove Road for several hours Monday afternoon.

An empty cement truck was headed west on Chinden after 2 p.m. when the driver lost control and hit a passenger car, an ACSO spokesman said. Neither driver was injured, he said.

The truck flipped on its side, blocking the intersection until it was removed from the intersection about 5:15 p.m., the spokesman said. Further details of the crash weren’t available Monday evening.
