Fatal Car Accident Causes Fire Near Boise

A fatal car accident causes fire near Boise, Idaho on Friday afternoon. Three victims reported injuries and one person was killed. The crash happened near Firebird Raceway on Highway 16 around milepost 104. A car traveling northbound crossed into the southbound lane and hit a car head-on. Both vehicles spun off the road. The passenger in the first car died at the scene. Three passengers in the car that was hit were flown to St. Alphonsus hospital in Boise with injuries. It is unclear whether the person who died was wearing a seatbelt. However, the other five people involved did have seatbelts on. Following the collision, the car that was hit caught on fire which caused a grass fire in the area. Investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing. The highway was closed for several hours while authorities put the fire out.

Car Accidents Causing Fires Statistics

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), approximately 33 car fires are reported every hour in the U.S. 18 percent of all reported fires occur on a road or a highway and involve a motor vehicle. The New York Daily News published a few safety tips that can help you prevent car fires and stay safe after they start, most of which are common sense. If you smell burning plastic or rubber, for example, pull over and investigate. Furthermore, look out for fuses that repeatedly blow, that could signal and overloaded wire and be a potential source of car fire. Also, parking over dry grass on a very hot day can lead to ignition.

Once your car has caught fire signal and immediately move into the right shoulder or right lane. Some people believe incorrectly that driving faster will put the fire out, but this is completely ridiculous. You should focus on getting yourself safely out of the vehicle and 150 feet or more away from it, then calling 911 to notify the fire department. Also, do not try and put the fire out, as the hood will be extremely hot and chemicals released during burning can be toxic to breathe.

Update on news release content following vehicle crashes

For those of you who follow ISP's news releases, you'll notice some updates to the content of those releases involving vehicle collisions. It has been a lengthy and careful process to find a practice that best serves public information needs regarding traffic incidents and traffic safety that is balanced with the need to maintain the integrity of crash investigations and protect against an unwarranted invasion of patient or personal privacy.

News releases including a general summary of what occurred will continue to be shared in as timely a manner as possible following the incident. Traffic alerts of lane or road blockages will continue to be shared with the public as these incidents are in progress through ISP District Twitter accounts (see below).

In addition to a general summary of what occurred, a description of vehicles involved and ages, genders, and hometowns, as known, will also continue to be shared in these immediate releases.

What will no longer be shared in the immediate releases on vehicle incidents are the names of people involved and what hospital any patients are transported to. Releasing the names of all individuals involved while the investigation is ongoing has been found to be a potential interference in those investigations, and it is essential for all involved that investigations proceed unobstructed. It's also a step to protect the privacy of those involved, including those who may be victims, witnesses, or under investigation for being responsible for a crash, as well as patient medical privacy. These updates also bring ISP's procedure regarding vehicle crash releases in line with a number of other Idaho law enforcement agencies that regularly issue news releases following vehicle crashes.

Idaho State Police also appreciate the Idaho State Association of County Coroners and their members statewide who assist with the necessary and often difficult task of confirming the identity of those deceased as a result of a vehicle collision and confirming next of kin has been notified. Local county coroners are also now taking on the task of making public the names of decedents involved in vehicle crashes.

The purpose of public releases following a vehicle collision is to inform the public of what occurred. It's also hoped that, as unfortunate and tragic as these incidents are, that they serve to remind us of the importance of safe driving behavior, of awareness of laws intended to increase traffic safety, and of the need of communities to make traffic safety a priority that will save lives.

Thank you for your support.
