40-Year Old Man Causes DUI Accident on I-84, Gets 15 Years in Jail

A man who caused a DUI accident on I-84 in Boise, Idaho, in 2020, was sentenced to 15 years in jail. 

The man was identified as Eathon Wesen, a 40-year-old man who first drove off the interstate and then, when trying to go back to the interstate, he overcorrected and as a result, the car rolled over. He was driving a pickup car at the time of the DUI accident on I-84. 

The Chronicle of Centralia, Washington reports that the accident caused a 19-year-old Braydon Binkley to suffer severe traumatic injuries resulting in multiple fractures and collapsed lungs. The accident was so intense that the victim was thrown out of his car. The victim was immediately airlifted to a Boise hospital, Saint Alphonsus. The two other passengers traveling with him also suffered injuries. They were identified as Choe Sproles of Blackfoot, a 19-year-old, and Brittney Binkley of Centralia, a 30-year-old. They were also sent to the hospital. 

The Ada County prosecutor’s office reports say that the accused was under the influence of methamphetamine, codeine, morphine, and methadone when he crashed his car on May 10, 2020. According to the DUI laws, he was found guilty of aggravated DUI felony. 

As a result, after the final judgment, Wesen will serve 15 years in imprisonment and would get a chance of parole not before five years. Along with this, his driving license will also be suspended for ten years. He was unhurt in the accident and pleaded guilty in July 2020. 

Ada County prosecutor Jan Bennetts said, “Thank you to the Idaho State Police troopers who investigated this crash and helped my office ensure justice was served.”
