UPDATE:

ASHTON — Police say everyone is okay after a semi-truck rolled on U.S. Highway 20 Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened at mile marker 372 around 3:30 p.m., according to an Idaho State Police news release. The crash reportedly blocked the entire road creating a long line of traffic.

Investigators report 23-year-old Amar Singh of Aurora, Colorado, drove eastbound in a 2016 Freightliner pulling one trailer.

“Singh drove off the right shoulder, overcorrected, and overturned,” ISP reports. “The semi-truck came to rest on its passenger side blocking both the eastbound and westbound lane.”

The truck completely blocked the road for a little less than two hours. According to ISP, it took crews nearly five hours to have the wreckage cleaned up and the road completely open.

UPDATE:

ASHTON — Idaho State Police has opened one lane on U.S. Highway 20 north of Ashton. Eastbound and westbound traffic is alternating and drivers should expect delays.
