On Monday March 24, 2014, at approximately 6:38 pm. The Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle rollover injury crash on State Highway 48 near milepost 20, in Jefferson County. Anita M. Tappe, 31, of Rigby, was westbound on SH 48 in a 2006 Toyota Tundra, when she failed to negotiate the curve. Tappe's vehicle went off the right side of the roadway where she over-corrected and the vehicle then came across both lanes of travel and off the left shoulder. Tappe over-corrected again and the vehicle came back onto the roadway where it rolled multiple times, and came to rest in the lanes of travel. Tappe was wearing her seatbelt and was transported by air ambulance to EIRMC in Idaho Falls. The lanes of travel were blocked for approximately 4 hours while troopers investigated the scene.
