Earlier today, October 19th, 2012, around 4:00 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash eastbound on US30 at milepost 256.5, at the western edge of Burley. Brent Osterhout, age 20 of Declo, was traveling east on US30 when he crossed the center line and went into the westbound lanes. Osterhout overcorrected to the right, coming back into the eastbound lanes before overcorrecting again, this time to the left. Osterhout's vehicle rolled over, coming to rest on the dividing line between eastbound and westbound traffic. Osterhout was ejected from his vehicle, and was transported by air ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello for treatment of his injuries. Traffic was blocked for almost two hours. The crash is still under investigation.
