Both lanes of travel on SH28 are now open.


On October 09, 2012 at 3:20 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle fatality crash north on SH28 at mile marker 41, south of Lone Pine.

Steven D. Strickling, 49 of Idaho Falls, was driving north on SH28 in a 2007 Kenworth Tractor hauling a load of road mix. Strickling drove off the right shoulder of the roadway, lost control, and drove back onto the road where the truck overturned coming to rest on its driver's side in the south lane of travel. The impact of the crash caused part of the load to scatter on the highway and roadside.

Strickling was trapped in his vehicle where he succumbed to his injuries.

The south lane of travel has been blocked since the time of crash. Crews are on scene working to remove the wreckage.

Idaho State Police was assisted at the scene by Clark County Sheriff's Office, Clark County EMT and the Idaho Transportation Department.
