On Wednesday November 30, 2011, at approximately 5:00 pm the Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle injury crash southbound on Interstate 15 at milepost 70 near the Clark Street exit. Phillip Nichols, 79, of Clancy, MT, was traveling southbound in his 1993 Dodge Pickup pulling a Bigfoot Camper Trailer. For unknown reasons, Nichols' vehicle veered to the right and struck the guard rail. Nichols then crossed all three lanes of traffic where he came to rest in the median. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. Nichols was transported with minor injuries to Portneuf Medical Center. Seatbelts were worn and weather is not believed to be a factor in this crash.

This crash is under investigation by Trooper T. Williams.
