RIGGINS, ID – Video shows the moment a massive rock slide came crashing down on Highway 95 near Riggins, Idaho.

The slide measured roughly 120 feet long and 40 feet deep, according to the Idaho Transportation Department, which responded to the slide Friday morning along with the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office.

One of the biggest rocks in the slide measured at 25 feet across and almost as deep.

Officials said it’s not clear how long the road would be closed because there is no way to estimate when all of the rocks and debris can be cleared.
