On Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at approximately 2:40pm, the Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle rollover crash westbound on I84 near milepost 158. Lisa McKinney, 48, of Hagerman, ID was traveling westbound on interstate I84 in a black Chevy Trailblazer, when for unknown reasons the vehicle turned sharply. McKinney then overcorrected causing the vehicle to roll several times from the north side of the roadway, crossing over both lanes of travel, finally coming to rest on all four wheels facing east. McKinney was wearing her seatbelt and only suffered minor injuries. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. The westbound lanes of travel were blocked for approximately one and a half hours. Trooper Pohanka was assisted at the scene by Gooding County medical, fire, and deputies.
