On March 14, 2012, at approximately 2:05 p.m., the Idaho State Police investigated a three vehicle crash on westbound Interstate 84 at milepost 187, near Eden. Trooper Chandler was initially responding for a reported two vehicle crash at the same location. That crash involved a 2001 Nissan Sentra, driven by Becki Carlson, age 42 of Twin Falls, and a 2006 Toyota 4-Runner, driven by Ronald Radabaugh, age 65 of Buhl. Carlson struck the rear of Radabaugh's vehicle. Both vehicles pulled to the side of the road to report the crash. Before Trooper Chandler could arrive on scene, Carlson left the scene and began to drive the wrong direction away from the crash. Carlson struck the side of a 2005 Freightliner Semi, driven by Baldev Singh-Dhaliwal, age 43 of Abbotsford, Canada, who was also headed westbound. Carlson's vehicle crashed into the median. Singh-Dhaliwal and Radabaugh were uninjured in the crash. Carlson was transported with minor injuries to St Luke's Magic Valley. Everyone involved were wearing their seatbelts.

Trooper Chandler is investigating the crash. One lane was blocked for approximately one hour. Charges are pending.
