On July 6, 2012 at 11:34 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a one vehicle rollover crash in the Devil's Corral area north of Twin Falls.

Jimmy Chan, 20 of Twin Falls, was driving northbound on Old Stage Road heading into the Devil's Corral area in a 2009 PT Cruiser. Chan came upon a curve driving at speeds which were too fast for conditions. Chan lost control of the vehicle causing it to roll before coming to rest on the driver's side. Extraction was used to remove both Chan and his passenger, Andrew J. Silveria, 22 of Filer, from the vehicle.

Chan was transported by ground ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center in Twin Falls. Silveria was transported by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise. Neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this crash.

This crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
