On September 14, 2013, at approximately 7:00 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a two vehicle crash on US93 near milepost 38.

Measho Tesfe, 31, of Twin Falls, in a 2001 Mazda Protege, and Alexander Lehman, 17, of Filer, in a 1986 Ford F-150 pickup, were both driving north on US 93. A large amount of dust in the road was causing poor visibility for vehicles driving through it. Tesfe slowed due to the visibility. Lehman's pickup hit the back of the Mazda.

Tesfe was transported to St. Lukes Magic Valley Regional Medical Center via ground ambulance. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts.

The crash is under investigation by The Idaho State Police.
