On February 4, 2012, at approximately 11:30 a.m., Idaho State Police investigated a single-vehicle crash on Old Highway 91 just north of McCammon, Idaho.

Cory Burk, 41 years old, of Pocatello, Idaho, was traveling north in a 1991 Chevrolet pickup when, for unknown reasons, he drove off the right side of the roadway. The pickup then came back onto the roadway before rolling onto its side on the left side of the road.

Burk was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Bannock County Coroner. It does not appear that alcohol was a factor in this crash.

The crash is under investigation by Idaho State Police Cpl. Donahue, who was assisted by Cpl. Noyes, and Bannock County Sheriff's Deputies, and Bannock County Search and Rescue Personnel.
