On June 16, 2013 at 6:53 pm, the Idaho State Police investigated a single-vehicle rollover northbound on I-15 at milepost 65, 2 miles south of Pocatello. David Martinson, 28, of Vancouver, Washington, was northbound in a 2007 Nissan Xterra in the right lane. John Stoor, 50, of Chubbuck, was northbound in a 1994 Honda Passport in the left lane. There was a juvenile passenger in Stoor's vehicle. Martinson made a left-hand lane change, and Stoor swerved to avoid impact. As a result, Stoor lost control of the vehicle and rolled, coming to a rest in the median.
Stoor was transported to the Portneuf Regional Medical Center by ground ambulance. All subjects were wearing seatbelts. One lane of travel was blocked for approximately one hour for the crash investigation.
