On Wednesday, May 13, 2015, at approximately 3:32 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated a single vehicle, rollover crash on Interstate 15 north of Blackfoot.

Scott Reeves, age 58, of Idaho Falls, was driving a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup southbound on I-15 near milepost 99, about 6 miles north of Blackfoot. The vehicle went off the road into the median and after traveling through the median for a short time, came back onto the road. As Reeves came back onto the roadway he overcorrected, causing the vehicle to slide sideways across the lanes. The pickup hit the guard rail on the right side of the road and overturned.

Reeves was transported by ground ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.
