Two separate crashes snarled traffic on Westbound I-84 in Nampa during the Monday evening commute.

Both accidents happened between the Garrity and Franklin Boulevard exits.

The first crash involved five vehicles roughly around 6:15 p.m.

A short time later, another vehicle crashed just west of the original accident.

Several cars were severely damaged and westbound lanes were blocked while crews worked to clear the scene.
