On Tuesday, January 7, a juvenile pedestrian was struck in a pedestrian accident in Wendell, Idaho. The injury crash was reported shortly after 4 p.m. and was immediately investigated by Idaho State Police.
Idaho police stated that a semi-truck hit the pedestrian at the intersection of East Main Street and North Idaho Street around 4:03 p.m.

Trevor Eldredge, 26, of Saint Anthony, was traveling south on North Idaho Street in a 1995 Peterbilt tractor trailer. The driver was pulling three large stacks of hay, weighing over 2,000 lbs., in the bed of his truck.
Eldredge reportedly was about to make a righthand turn onto E Main Street from N Idaho Street when he accidentally struck the juvenile pedestrian at the crosswalk.
