Saturday July 18, 2020

At approximately 18:21 hours, on 07/17/2020, Troopers were notified of a crash blocking the freeway on I-84 westbound at milepost 95. Upon arrival, Troopers found that there were two vehicles involved. A BMW passenger car was traveling eastbound on I-84 near milepost 95 at a high rate of speed according to witnesses.  A Mercury passenger car was traveling westbound I-84 at the same location. The driver of the BMW veered quickly to the left and went through the cable barrier in the median and collided head-on with the Mercury passenger car. A passenger in the Mercury passenger car sustained fatal injuries from the accident. Impairment and excessive speed are being looked at as possible contributing factors for the driver of the BMW.
