On January 24, 2014, at 4:50 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a two vehicle crash on US 20 at milepost 323, near Rigby.

Terra Bowden, 29, of Roy, Utah, was travelling westbound in a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. Ryan Belk, 22, of Pingree, Idaho, was also westbound, in a 2001 Buick Century. Bowden took her eyes off the road to deal with a child. When she looked back, she swerved to avoid hitting the rear of Belks vehicle. Bowden then overcorrected, hitting Belks vehicle. Her car then drove off the right shoulder through a fence and rolled once, landing on its wheels.

Bowden was transported via ground ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
