BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A 38-year-old log truck driver authorities say caused the initial collision that resulted in a 44-vehicle pileup on Interstate 84 in January has been cited for inattentive driving.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/1mh4lbC) that Idaho State Police announced Wednesday the decision to cite Cory D. Ford of Emmett.

Police say Ford failed to slow down in heavy fog on Jan. 9 and sideswiped a tractor-trailer and rear-ended a Subaru Forester on the highway in Meridian.

The pileup happened as motorists entered a wall of fog during the morning rush hour. Ten people were injured in the collisions, including the driver of the Subaru who sustained serious injuries.

He was released after several days in a hospital.
