Idaho State Police have named the driver who caused traffic delays Wednesday on Interstate 84 as William Rubenacker, 54, of Bonners Ferry.

ISP reported that the crash, which happened at about 11:10 a.m. on I-84 at milepost 29 in Caldwell, occurred when Rubenacker was westbound on the interstate. He was driving a 2002 International dump truck.

Rubenacker drove off the right shoulder, over-corrected, and then drove back onto the roadway where the vehicle overturned and blocked all westbound lanes for about three hours, according to ISP.

Rubenacker was transported by ground ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Nampa. He was wearing a seatbelt.
