On December 31, 2010 at approximately 10:49 a.m., Idaho State Police, Fort Hall Police and EMS, and Bannock County Search and Rescue responded to a two-vehicle head-on collision on I-15 at milepost 75.5.

Elizabeth, 15, and Ann Loveland, 44, both of Pocatello, were traveling north on I-15 when Elizabeth lost control of their 2009 Nissan Altima on ice. Their vehicle crossed the median and struck a 2008 Toyota Prius traveling south driven by John Brown, 67, also of Pocatello. All parties involved were wearing seatbelts and were not injured in the collision. Elizabeth was cited for driving too fast for conditions.

The crash is still under investigation by Sergeant Winans of the Idaho State Police.
