Joaquin Figueiredo, 65 years old, of Gooding ID, was traveling north on State Highway 46, in a 2003 Dodge van, when he went off the road hitting a guard rail. Joaquin then came back across the northbound lane of travel and into the southbound lane. Joaquin hit Joseph Melguin, 45 years old also of Gooding ID, who was traveling south, in a 1992 Chevy truck, head on. Joseph was ejected from his vehicle and succumbed to his injuries on scene, notifications to the family have been made.

Joaquin was extricated from his vehicle and transported to North Canyon Medical Center. The crash is still under investigation. State Highway 46 was blocked for approximately 3.5 hours, but all lanes of travel are now open.
