Mystery surrounds fatality on I-90

Print Article

Investigators with the Idaho State Police are still searching for reasons behind a Monday fatality on Interstate 90 that killed a Rathdrum man.

Just after noon on Jan. 13, Joshua Brown, 38, pulled his 1987 Chevy S10 pickup over on the side of I-90 and stepped onto the westbound lanes, where he was struck by a 2013 Peterbilt car hauler driven by Michael Johnson, 64, of Arkansas. Brown died at the scene.

Lt. Chris Schenck of the Idaho State Police said ISP investigators are still looking into a motive behind the incident. He said no stray item Brown might have tried to retrieve was recovered at the scene, and that the S10’s engine was still running when first responders arrived.

The investigation is ongoing.
