Richard Rothermel, 39, of Pocatello, was driving southbound on Interstate 15 in a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. Rothermel was driving too fast for the winter conditions, overcorrected, and drove off the right shoulder where the pickup overturned and came to rest on its top.

The crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
