Six people are recovering after a driver failed to stop at a stop sign, leading to a two-vehicle crash in rural Canyon County.

On Saturday, June 24, 2017, around 8:39 p.m.,  Idaho State Police responded to the crash at the intersection of Marsing Road and Riverside Road.

Police say a 29-year-old driver from BOise failed to stop at a stop sign, and was hit in the intersection by a Ford pick up with a horse trailer.

The Ford did not have a stop sign and rolled several times before coming to rest on its wheels. The trailer came to rest on its side, but both horses survived the crash.

Six of the seven individuals involved, including a juvenile, were treated at nearby hospitals. Officers on scene say two people suffered critical injuries.

Two elderly passengers in the pick up truck weren't wearing their seatbelts.

The intersection was blocked for two and a half hours while crews worked to clear the scene.  

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
