Local man in fair condition following 2-vehicle crash near Burley


BURLEY – A Pocatello man is in the hospital in fair condition following a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 84 at milepost 236 in Cassia County.


The crash occurred around 10:20 Wednesday morning, according to a news release from Idaho State Police.


Thirty-seven-year-old Billy Gill of Pocatello was traveling westbound on I-84 in a 2017 Kenworth tow truck. He hit the back of a Kenworth semi-truck pulling a tanker trailer as it was merging onto the highway from the right shoulder.


The driver of the semi was 41-year-old Brandon Richins of Clearfield, Utah.


Both vehicles came to a stop on the right shoulder of the interstate.


ISP reports Gill was taken by helicopter to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello. The news release did not specify whether Richins was injured but a family member tells EastIdahoNews.com he was hospitalized later in the day. His condition is unknown.


Crews are working to clean up the wreckage, which will impact the right lane of travel for several more hours, as of 3 p.m. Wednesday.


The crash is under investigation. Idaho Transportation Department, along with Malta Ambulance and Fire Department assisted in the response.
