On February 26, 2011 at 11:36 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle rollover crash northbound on US93 at milepost 186.2 near Richfield, Idaho.

Ryan Parke, 32, of Carey, Idaho, was traveling northbound on US93 in a black Chevrolet Silverado when he failed to negotiate a curve and went off the roadway. Parke's vehicle landed on its nose and flipped forward, coming to rest on the right side.

Parke was transported by air ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.
