Shortly before 8:30 this morning, February 24, 2011, the Idaho State Police responded to an rollover crash resulting in injuries to 2 occupants. Terry Glenn, age 57 of Pocatello was traveling Westbound on I84 between on mileposts 192 and 193, about 3 miles east of the Hazelton area. Glenn was passing other drivers who had slowed for the icy conditions when he lost control of his vehicle, went into the median, and rolled his Dodge pickup. Terry Glenn and his passenger, Pamela Glenn, age 56 and also of Pocatello, were both transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center in Twin Falls, where they are in stable condition. Both were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash. Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor, although Terry was cited for driving too fast for conditions. The investigation is ongoing by Sgt. Oliver, with assistance from Captain Storm. Jerome County Deputies, Paramedics, and Fire Department personnel also assisted at the scene.
