On Thursday, October 24, 2013 at approximately 8pm, the Idaho State Police investigated a two vehicle injury crash at 75 W 300 S, near Rupert. George Bunn, 56 from Burley, was driving a 2007 Ford F150, east on 300 South when Gerald Heward, 64 also from Burley, driving a 1995 semi tractor hauling sugar beets, attempted to make a left turn onto 300 S from a farm road, failing to yield the right of way to Bunn. The Ford F150 struck the middle of the trailer on the driver's side, lodging under the trailer. George Bunn and his passenger, Teressa Bunn, 53 from Burley, had to be extricated from their vehicle. Both George and Teressa Bunn were air lifted to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello, ID. A 15 year old juvenile in the vehicle was transported to Minidoka Memorial by ground ambulance and treated and released. The road was blocked for approximately three and a half hours. The crash is still under investigation.
