On Wednesday August 3, 2016 at approximately 4:53 pm, Idaho State Police investigated a two-vehicle crash on US 26 near milepost 350 just east of Ririe, in Bonneville County.

Cesar R. Godinez, 34, of Blackfoot, was driving a 1999 Chevy Suburban. Derrick D. Bryan, 47, of Ammon, was driving a 1999 Honda Accord. Godinez, traveling westbound on US 26, slowed and stopped in the westbound lane due to a painting crew ahead. Bryan, traveling in the same direction, struck Godinez's vehicle from behind.

Bryan was transported by ground ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. Neither Godinez or Bryan were wearing seatbelts. Lanes were blocked for cleanup crews for approximately fifty minutes.

This crash is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.
