On October 3, 2009 at approximately 4:00 p.m., Idaho State Police and Bingham County Emergency Crews responded to a one-vehicle crash on US26 near milepost 284, approximately 21 miles west of Blackfoot. Charles Oxley, 46, of Blackfoot, was traveling eastbound on US26 near 2000 West Road when his 2001 Ford F-150 pickup left the right shoulder. Oxley overcorrected and came back onto the roadway where the vehicle rolled. Although he was wearing his seatbelt, Oxley was partially ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. His juvenile female passenger was also wearing her seatbelt and was transported by ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released with minor injuries. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor at this time. The crash is still under investigation by Corporal Sellers.
