At approximately 5:00pm on Tuesday, April 2, 2013, the Idaho State Police investigated a three vehicle crash westbound on I86 at milepost 61, near Chubbuck. The crash involved a red 2008 Dodge pickup stalled in traffic, a maroon 2003 Chevy suburban and a white 1997 Chevy Venture van. The right westbound lane at milepost 61 was blocked for approximately two hours while the vehicles were removed, which caused backup on the wye, from northbound I15 to westbound I86. The crash is under investigation.
