When trooper arrived on scene they found that three vehicles had crashed causing the far left lane (#1 travel Lane) to be blocked. Police say the driver of a gray BMW was slowing down due to congested traffic in front of her when she was struck in the left rear by a Ford SUV. At that same time a Chevy work van struck the right rear of the Ford SUV forcing it into the center concrete wall. All three vehicles were stopped blocking the #1 travel lane. The driver and passenger of the Ford SUV and the driver of the Chevy van where transported to Renown Regional Medical Center with claimed injuries. The driver of the BMW was uninjured. The drivers of the Ford and Chevy have been cited for following too close involving an accident. Impairment is not a factor of the accident. This section of highway is a four lane highway and the speed limit is 65 mph. The roadway was partially blocked for approximately 1 ½ hours.
