On April 19, 2016, at approximately 12:10 p.m., Idaho State Police investigated an injury crash on State Highway 24 near milepost 33. This is in Lincoln County, near 3150 E.

Raymundo Casiano, 55, of Paul, ID was driving a 2000 Freightliner westbound on State Highway 24 near milepost 33. Casiano failed to negotiate a slight curve in the road, and drove off the right side of the road. He overcorrected, then steered to the right again. The truck turned onto the driver's side, and slid down the road, blocking the highway.

Casiano was transported by air ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello, ID. It is unknown at this time whether or not he was wearing a seatbelt.

All travel lanes are now open. The investigation is continuing.
