On Monday, February 3, 2014, the Idaho State Police investigated a three-vehicle fatality crash northbound on Interstate 15 at milepost 114.5, north of the Dad's Truck Stop exit 113. Adrianne Elliott, 23, of Ammon, was northbound in a 1996 Mercury Marquis. Elliott's vehicle hit a patch of ice, causing her to lose control of the vehicle. Elliott then struck a 2012 Chevrolet Cruz being driven by Amanda Sterling, 30, of Idaho Falls. Elliott's vehicle was then struck on the passenger side by a 2012 Dodge 3500 pickup pulling a 2002 Haulette trailer being driven by William Jesperson, 70, of Riverton, UT. Elliott and her infant daughter were transported by ground ambulance to East Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. Elliott's other passenger, Dora Heiner, 74, of Idaho Falls, succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash and was pronounced dead on scene. Sterling and Jesperson were not injured in the crash. Everyone was wearing their seatbelts, and the infant was properly restrained in a safety seat.

This crash is still under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
