US 95 Opens Seven Hours After Road Closure

A devastating crash Saturday evening on US 95 near Sagle, Idaho left the driver, 62 year old John Moody, dead at the scene.

ISP said Moody was driving northbound on 95 when he drifted right off the road and overturned.

The crash evolved into a hazmat, because the semi was carrying ammonium nitrate and leaked nearly 500 gallons of the chemical onto the roadway. The road was completely closed to traffic as crews were trying to clean the mess in order to protect the public from the chemicals.

But this closure angered quite a few drivers on the road, causing them to take alternative routes that increased their traveling times by hours.

The road has since re-opened after being closed for nearly seven hours.
