On Thursday June 3, 2010, at approximately 12:45 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle injury crash northbound on Interstate 15 at milepost 59 between Inkom and Pocatello. Naomi Kleinlein, 69 of Sandy, Utah, was traveling north on Interstate 15 in a 2009 Suzuki SX4. Svetlana Khadeera, 34 of Moscow, Russia, was also driving north on Interstate 15 in a 2010 Kia Rio. Kleinlein changed lanes and encroached on Khadeera's lane of travel. The vehicles then collided and went off the right shoulder of the roadway, and Kleinlein's vehicle overturned. Kleinlein was taken by ground ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Neither Khadeera nor the other passengers were injured in the crash.
