One killed in crash on I-84 Saturday morning

CANYON COUNTY, Idaho (KBOI) - Idaho State Police are investigating a two-car crash that killed a man on I-84 Saturday morning.

Idaho State Police say the crash happened shortly after 9 a.m at mile marker 30 near Caldwell, between the Nampa Blvd. and Franklin Rd. exits.

According to Idaho State Police, Janice Parma of Nampa was driving west and lost control of her car on the icy road. When she crossed the median into eastbound lanes, her car was struck by a semi-truck.

"It was definitely a significant impact," Idaho State Police Sgt. Jens Pattis said. "The extent of it, obviously, I can't really put into words, you'd have to actually see it. It was an insane impact."

Police have identified the semi-driver as Jazmine Reann of Nampa.

Parma's passenger, Norberto Parma, was ejected from the car and died at the scene. Janice Parma was taken to St. Lukes in Nampa.

The scene has been cleared, and all lanes are open as of Saturday afternoon. 

Sgt. Pattis said the accident is a reminder for all drivers.

"Plan to have a little bit of slowdowns," Pattis said, "and drive at what you think is a comfortable speed. Don't overdo it. Just take your time and get there safely."

Ada County Sheriff's Office said 48 crashes were reported to dispatchers at all local agencies except Idaho State Police between midnight Friday and 1:00 p.m. Saturday.

In addition to the fatal crash, one injury crash was reported, along with 32 non-injury crashes. Eleven slide-offs were called in, and four hit-and-run crashes were also reported to dispatchers.
