Shortly after 1:30 AM this morning, October 12th, 2012, the Idaho State Police investigated a rollover crash involving a commercial vehicle that sent two people to the hospital. Amandeep Singh, age 44 of Calgary, Alberta was driving south on I15 at milepost 120, just north of Idaho Falls in a Freightliner truck with a loaded trailer. He drifted off the left side of the roadway into the median. When he tried to bring the vehicle back onto the road, it overturned, coming to rest on its side. Both he and his passenger, Baljinder Singh, age 64, also of Calgary, Alberta were transported by ground ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. Amandeep was wearing his seatbelt, but Baljinder was in the sleeper area of the cab. The left southbound lane of I15 is still partially blocked due to the crash. The crash is still under investigation. More information will be relayed when it becomes available.
