CALDWELL, Idaho — The Idaho State Police are searching for witnesses for a fatal westbound I-84 crash in Caldwell Friday.

The crash near milepost 29 involved two tractor-trailers. According to a press release from ISP, Jesus Gastelum Corrales, 24, of Glenns Ferry was traveling eastbound in a 2006 Peterbilt tractor-trailer. Gastelum Corrales lost control of the vehicle, went over the median and collided with another tractor-trailer driven by Clifford Dow, 34, of White City, Oregon.
