On Saturday, October 11, 2014, at approximately 2:20 a.m. the Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash on Interstate 15 at milepost 75 near Fort Hall.
Selena A. Vasquez, 19, of Idaho Falls, was driving a 2011 Honda Accord north on Interstate 15 when she drove off the left shoulder. Vasquez then came back on the roadway and proceeded to cross two lanes of Interstate 15 before striking the guardrail, coming to a stop in the right lane at milepost 75. Both Vasquez and her passenger, Iris A. Espinoza, 19, of Idaho Falls were wearing their seatbelts. Vasquez was transported by ground ambulance to the Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello. Alcohol does appear to be a factor. The northbound lanes of Interstate 15 were blocked for about an hour. This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
