UPDATE 11:35 a.m.
Boise Fire needed to use the "jaws of life" to pull an elderly man from a bad two-car accident in the heart of Downtown Boise.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the crash at Capitol Boulevard and Front Street, but early indications were that a car T-boned an SUV, causing the SUV to roll over into the street, pinning the SUV's driver inside the wreckage.

While the driver of the smaller vehicle did not require hospitalization, the driver of the SUV, identified as a man in his mid- to late-70s, was rushed to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise.

Boise Police and Fire departments are on the scene at a rollover car accident at the intersection of Capitol Boulevard and Front Street.

While details have not yet been released, the intersection is blocked by a fire engine unit and BPD squad cars are attending to the driver of the car.

Officials suggest taking an alternate route while emergency crews and paramedics clean up the scene.
