On December 28, 2010, at approximately 1:49 pm, the Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle injury crash on I-15, near milepost 84, just north of Fort Hall. Bethany Schwieder, age 22, of Rigby was driving northbound on I-15 when she drifted off the left shoulder. Schwieder overcorrected and rolled her red 1997 Toyota Camry into the median coming to rest in the right southbound lane of travel. The interstate was partially blocked for approximately one hour. Both Hull and her passenger Todd Schwieder, age 22, of Idaho Falls were transported to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello via ground ambulance. All occupants were wearing their seatbelts and weather is not thought to be a factor in this crash. Trooper Caldera was assisted at scene by Bingham County Sheriff's Office and Bingham County Medical.
