Crash on I-84 May Have Been Alcohol Related reports another motor vehicle collision occurred early yesterday morning that may have been alcohol related.

NAMPA – Two people were injured after an early morning crash on Interstate 84 Sunday.

The three-vehicle crash happened around 3:10 a.m. at milepost 38 near Nampa.

Jeffrey Hopf, 37, of Caldwell, was traveling westbound in a Ford F-150 pick-up when he struck a Volkswagen Golf driven by Jenna Spencer, 25, of Sagle, ID.

The impact caused Spencer's vehicle to crash into a Dodge pick-up driven by Steven Martinez, 31, of Nampa.

Hopf and Spencer were both transported to St. Alphonsus Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is a factor in this crash. It appears all drivers of the vehicles were wearing their seatbelts.

The crash is still under by Idaho State Police.

In Idaho, the purveyor of alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person may also be liable for injuries caused by a motor vehicle collision caused by the drunk driver. However, the purveyor must be given notice of the claim within 180 days of the onset of injury or death. If you or a loved one is injured due to the negligence of a drunk driver, it is wise to consult with an attorney who may be able to preserve and protect your legal rights and remedies by investigating the claim and serving a notice of dram shop prior to the expiration of the aforesaid 180 day period.
