Two Semis Collide on I-15 in Blackfoot


(BLACKFOOT,ID)  –  Traffic along I-15 in Blackfoot was diverted for several hours Tuesday following the collision of two semi trucks.  Idaho State Police say 57-year-old George Riedel of Quebec, Canada, pulled over to check for a flat tire just before 2 a.m. when his tractor trailer was rear-ended by 55-year-old Peter Spicer of Pocatello. Spicer’s double-trailers fell over on their sides and both trucks soon caught on fire. Spicer was taken to Bingham Memorial Hospital for treatment. The crash is still under investigation.
