Shortly after 11:30 this morning, Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle crash eastbound on I84 at milepost 237, near the Idahome Rd. Exit in Cassia County. Gavin Keltner, age 18 of Chino, CA was traveling east on I84 near the Idahome Rd. exit when he drove off the left side of the road. Keltner then overcorrected and struck the guardrail on the right side of the road before going across and striking the left guardrail, where his vehicle came to rest partially blocking the left lane. Keltner fled the scene on foot but was located and taken into custody by Cassia County Deputies shortly afterwards. Keltner was wearing his seat belt. He was charged with joy riding, leaving the scene of an accident, driving without a license or insurance, careless driving, and resisting and obstructing law enforcement officers. The left lane was blocked for for approximately one and a half hours.
