Semi driver killed when truck plows into Interstate-84 overpass

BURLEY, Idaho (KBOI) -- A semi truck driver was killed early Friday when the truck plowed into a overpass west of Burley.

The Idaho Transportation Department says westbound traffic is being routed off Interstate-84 at exit 208 through the city of Paul. Only westbound traffic is affected at this time, however, officials say eastbound traffic will be closed when the truck is extracted from the pillar.

The driver of the semi has not been identified.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by Idaho State Police.
