The Idaho State Police investigated a multiple-injury crash on I15 at milepost 26, just north of the Oneida/Bannock County line yesterday. Shortly before 10 PM on March 16th, 2011, Flint Felde, age 40 of Missoula, MT was traveling south on I15 near milepost 26. The roadway in the area was wet, but the bridge at that location was icy. As Felde went over the bridge, he lost control of his vehicle and rolled several times, coming to rest on the right shoulder. Both he and his 3-year-old passenger were injured. They were both transported by ground ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center where they remain in guarded condition. Felde's passenger was not in a safety seat, and whether or not either occupant was wearing a seatbelt is still under investigation. Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor. The investigation is ongoing by Trooper Nalder of the Idaho State Police, with assistance from Cpl. Caldera, as well as deputies and paramedics from Oneida County and Bannock C
