On November 12th, 2010 at 12:59 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a three-vehicle injury crash on US93 at mile post 63, approximately 10 miles south of Shoshone. Adrian Jensen, 33 of Twin Falls, was traveling southbound on US93 in a 1995 Subaru Legacy when for unknown reasons he crossed into the northbound lane of traffic and struck an oncoming utility trailer. The trailer was being towed by a 2002 Ford pickup truck driven by Paulo Pereira, 23 of Shoshone. The impact caused the Subaru to spin and be struck again, this time by a semi truck driven by Yevgenee Solnyk, 27 of Lisle,Illinois.

Jensen was transported to St. Luke's Magic Valley in Twin Falls with life-threatening injuries. Pereira and Solnyk were not injured and were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. It is unknown at this time if Jensen was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash is under investigation by Cpl. J. Gibbs. He was assisted by Sgt. Oliver, Cpl D. Gibbs, Tprs. Clausing and Dahl as well as the Idaho Transportation Department and Jerome County Sheriff's Office.
