Boise officer cited for wrong-way crash

BOISE, Idaho -- A Boise police officer has been cited for causing a crash at a downtown intersection while he was responding to another officer's call for backup.
Garden City Police investigated the July 9 crash and found that Officer Nicolas Ellis did not yield to traffic already in an intersection and struck an SUV driven by Robert McCarthy of Boise. McCarthy and his wife, Fredrikka, sustained minor injuries. They were treated at a Boise hospital and released.
Ellis was traveling southbound on a northbound one-way street at the time of the collision.
He was cited for failing to stop when traffic is obstructed. The citation carries a $90 fine.
Boise police will continue an internal investigation to determine if Ellis followed department policies and procedures in responding to the call.
