On January 28, 2013, at 10:24AM, Idaho State Police investigated a two vehicle crash on Interstate 15 at 115, just south of the Sunnyside Exit. Tamra Wyatt, 54, of Townsend, Montana, was driving northbound on Interstate 15 in her black 2007 GMC Sierra behind a semi truck. The semi slowed down with traffic and Wyatt was unable to react in time. Wyatt rear ended the semi causing her vehicle to rotate and come to rest blocking both northbound lanes. Both the driver and the passenger were wearing their seatbelts. Portions of the northbound interstate were closed while crews worked to remove the vehicles.
