Thursday news and weather 6/27/24


Thursday 062724



An accident last night just after 10 near Wendell has claimed one life.  Police say it happened on I-84 when a male driver was traveling the wrong way in the westbound lane when he collided head on with a semi.  The truck drove through the median across the eastbound lanes and through a fence before coming to rest on the frontage road.



Idaho state police are investigating an officer use of force shooting that occurred in Benewah county Monday.  Deputies were at a residence attempting to arrest a 33 year old male for a felony probation violation.  When deputies entered the home in the small town of Emida, a shot was fired.  It’s believed the man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 



The Supreme Court has declined to say whether an opinion “inadvertently” posted and then quickly removed from its website on yesterday in a high-profile Idaho abortion case represents its final decision. The accidental opinion reinstated a lower court ruling allowing hospitals in Idaho to provide abortions in medical emergencies.



The city of Twin Falls say they hear the concerns regarding strong odors in parts of the city.  Initial tests show these odors are not from City wastewater lines but rather from specific industries inside or adjacent to the City of Twin Falls.  To submit an odor report, go to the Twin Falls website.



On Monday what the governor of Idaho is calling a library bounty goes into effect.  The legislation, passed by lawmakers in April and signed into law soon after by a reluctant Gov. Brad Little, provides a mechanism for filing lawsuits against school or public libraries if minors are able to access materials whose contents are deemed “harmful.”



The Idaho division of motor vehicles says they are experiencing outages with the drivers knowledge testing stations.  Idaho uses touch-screen computer stations to give new drivers and new residents the written portion of the Idaho driver’s test.  Since the end of May, the DMV have had to rely on paper when the equipment fails.
