On Thursday, September 10, 2015, at approximately 2:10 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle crash northbound I-15 near milepost 73, near Chubbuck.

While driving northbound on I-15, Corbridge's semi rear ended Palmer's Toyota. Both vehicles came to rest on the right side of the roadway.
