On Monday, June 25, 2012 at 12:12 pm, Idaho State Police troopers investigated a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 15 at milepost 138, approximately three miles north of Roberts, Idaho. The crash resulted in one fatality.

The driver (pending identification) was traveling south bound on Interstate 15 near milepost 138 in a 2004 Ford Expedition when he lost control of the vehicle and drove into the median. The vehicle overturned, crossed the north bound lanes of travel, and came to rest on its top on the east side of the north bound lanes of Interstate 15.

The driver died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash. His passenger, Javier Figeroa-Martinez, 17 of Dubois, was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls with non-life-threatening injuries.

The right lane of north bound Interstate 15 was blocked by emergency vehicles near the scene of the crash for approximately three hours.

The crash remains under investigation.
