On January 28, 2013, at 11:09 AM, Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle crash on Interstate 15 at exit 116. Eric L. Platt, 64, of Spokane, Washington, was driving south on Interstate 15 in his gray 2006 Ford F-250 pulling a twenty six foot travel trailer. As Platt drove under the southbound 116 overpass, by Sunnyside Road, he encountered some ice and lost control of his truck. The trailer detached and came to rest on its side on top of the guardrail. Both the driver and the passenger were wearing their seatbelts and were not injured. Portions of the interstate were blocked for two hours while crews worked to remove the vehicles.
