On May 7, 2013, at approximately 8:18 a.m., Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash on Arbon Valley Highway near the eastbound onramp to Interstate 86 in Power County.

Memori Manning, age 15, of Chubbuck, was driving a 1997 Toyota Camry southbound on Arbon Valley Highway near Interstate 86 when she fell asleep, drove left of the center line and collided head-on with a 2007 Peterbuilt semi-truck driven by Tell Scherbinske, age 29 of Blackfoot. Manning and her two passengers, James Hottel, age 15, and Tavrie Hottel, age 12, both from Chubbuck, were transported to Portneuf Medical Center.

The eastbound onramp to Interstate 86 was blocked from the time of the crash until approximately 11:00 a.m. while crews worked to remove the commercial vehicle.

The investigation is continuing.
