On September 27, 2013, at approximately 6:35 a.m., Pocatello Police Department received a
9-1-1 call from a subject who had driven off of a cliff, and initially could only give his location as being between Pocatello and Utah. Further questioning by the 9-1-1 dispatcher produced answers that indicated the subject was possibly still in the Pocatello area, in the vicinity of Century High school. Officers from Pocatello Police Department and Bannock County Sheriff's Office drove through the area with lights and sirens activated, in hopes the caller would see or hear them, thus determining a location.

Pocatello Police Department located the vehicle in the vicinity of southbound Interstate 15, near milepost 65, north of Century High School, with Bannock County Sheriff's Officers arriving shortly thereafter.

Idaho State Police investigated the crash. Evan Daniel Frampton, 58, of Layton, UT, was driving south on Interstate 15, near milepost 65, in a 1999 Infiniti I30 sedan. He drove into the median, overcorrected, slid off the right side of the road, and went through a right of way fence. The vehicle came to rest at the top of a cliff above Hildreth Road.

Frampton was wearing a seatbelt. He was transported by ground ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello, ID. The investigation is continuing.
