On Thursday, November 10, 2011, at 10:00pm, the Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle semi crash on US 95 north of Weiser. James Johnson, 61 from Clarkston, WA, was southbound on US 95 at mile marker 93.6. He was driving a semi tractor and trailer that was loaded with lumber. Johnson came around the curve at Mann’s Creek Store where he was confronted with several head of cattle in the roadway. As he swerved to miss the cattle, the load shifted and the truck and trailer overturned spilling the lumber in the roadway. The tractor turned on its side and the trailer flipped on its top coming to rest in the middle of the road blocking both lanes. Both lanes were blocked for four hours to allow crews to upright and remove the semi.
The crash is under investigation
