On Tuesday, May 3, 2011, at approximately 5 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a single vehicle fatality crash on State Highway 55 at milepost 146.3, in McCall, ID.

McCall Police Department was actively pursuing Andrew E. Dalgleish, 26, of McCall, who was driving a 1993 Dodge Ram pickup. Dalgleish led McCall PD on a chase through the side streets of McCall, where McCall PD had their emergency lights and sirens activated. Dalgleish then drove onto State Highway 55, where speeds hit 80mph. While on the highway, Dalgleish left the roadway and hit a tree.

Dalgleish was transported to St. Lukes in McCall, where he was pronounced dead. Dalgleish was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and alcohol appears to not be a factor.

The crash is still under investigation by Master Corporal Boll. He was assisted on scene by Corporal Nauman, Corporal Anthony, and Senior Trooper Wright, as well as the Valley County Sheriff's office, McCall PD, McCall Ambulance, and McCall Fire Rescue.
