As we come on the air this morning, police and rescue workers are dealing with a major crash that has closed a portion of I-84.  The ITD says the accident occurred near the Jerome Minidoka county line in the eastbound lane.  At last check crews are working to open at least one lane of travel.  The crash involves at least 2 large semi-trucks.  It happened just after 2 am.  There are injuries and one fatality is reported.  Authorities report a large debris field.

Police are investigating a 3 vehicle crash in the same area along I-84 that left one person injured.  It happened yesterday just after 2 pm when a car collided with a potato truck.  Then the first car collided with a second.

The Jerome School district superintendent Pat Charlton sent a message to parents yesterday that said a student had taken a weapon to the High School.  The school went into lockdown while police investigated.  The student was taken into custody.

Twin Falls police and the Idaho Fish and Game spent much of yesterday morning dealing with a cow moose that had wondered into the city.  Authorities say the moose was first spotted near the canyon rim near Costco.  Unfortunately the Moose died when workers attempted to sedate it.  The moose fell over the canyon rim and died. 

A proposal by the Idaho Senate to call a special session of the Idaho Legislature to reinstate the presidential primary election in May does not have the votes to advance in the Idaho House of Representatives.  Meanwhile support is building in the Idaho House for a different proposal that could reinstate the presidential primary in March.

The Jerome County prosecuting attorney has resigned his position.  Christopher Calbo recently pled no contest to assault charges in Oregon. 

U.S. Magistrate Judge Debora K. Grasham is expected to decide in the coming weeks whether to grant a request to temporarily bar Idaho Attorney General Raúl Labrador from enforcing the state’s so-called “abortion trafficking” law.  The lawsuit is over its constitutionality proceeds in federal court.


After falling to 0-2 for the first time since 2005 on a last-second kick against UCF, Boise State's captain and linebacker DJ Schramm said, "everything we want is still right in front of us."  Under head coach Andy Avalos, the Broncos have an annual goal of winning a Mountain West Championship and a bowl game. While those goals are still well within reach with conference play yet to kick off, Avalos' group is in need of a momentum-changing win on Saturday as it welcomes North Dakota to The Blue.
