On November 20, 2015, at approximately 5:45 a.m., Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 15, near milepost 79, just south of the Ft. Hall exit.

Martin Carreno Patino, 22, of Idaho Falls, ID was driving southbound in a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta. Ahmad Mohammad, 20, of Pocatello, ID was ahead of Patino, driving southbound in a 2013 Ford Mustang, at a slower rate of speed than Patino. Patino did not slow sufficiently in time to avoid driving into the rear of Mohammad's vehicle.

Mohammad was transported by ground ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center. Patino and Mohammad were both wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
