CALDWELL, Idaho — A collision between a Dodge pickup and a cement truck closed U.S. Highway 20 east of Caldwell for more than two hours Friday morning.
A spokesman for the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office tells KTVB that both drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. They have since been released.
According to a patrol lieutenant, the pickup was headed northbound on Northside Boulevard. Witnesses say the driver failed to stop at the stop sign and collided with the side of the cement truck. The impact of the crash was so forceful it knocked off the front axle of the cement truck and caused it to tip over.
