GOODING COUNTY — A man driving a semitrailer told police he couldn't see a tractor pulling hay before he crashed into it Friday evening.

About 6:15 p.m., Jack M. Gray, 65, of Gooding was westbound on 1300 South hauling two empty double flatbed trailers. The sun was shining in his eyes, he said, and he didn't see the tractor driven by Tomas Huarilloclla Zapana, 35, of Gooding.

Gray struck the back of the trailer loaded with hay near 2450 East and the tractor overturned.

Both men were taken by ambulance to North Canyon Medical Center in Gooding. Neither was wearing a seat belt.

The road was blocked for about four hours.

Idaho State Police is investigating, with assistance from the Gooding County Sheriff's Office and Gooding police.
