CALDWELL — An Oregon man was killed Friday in a crash on Interstate 84 in Caldwell.

Clifford Dow, 34, of White City, Oregon, died of his injuries at the scene, according to Idaho State Police.

The crash, which involved two semi trucks, occurred at about 11:40 a.m. on westbound I-84 near Franklin Road at milepost 29. Traffic was blocked into the late afternoon, and at 3:45 p.m. Idaho State Police advised motorists to find an alternate route for the evening.

Jesus Gastelum Corrales, 24, of Glenns Ferry was transported by ground ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, state police said.

Corrales, who was traveling eastbound in a 2006 Peterbilt tractor-trailer, lost control of the vehicle and went over the median, where his truck collided with another tractor-trailer driven by Dow, according to police.

Investigating troopers are asking anyone who witnessed this crash, and who has not already spoken with a trooper, to call Idaho State Police dispatch at 208-846-7500.

The search for witnesses includes anyone who may have followed the eastbound tractor-trailer prior to the crash.

“An Oregon man lost his life in the collision, and Troopers are doing all they can to answer how it happened,” according to police.
