Vehicle Crashes Into Building in Fatal Crash in Wendell

ISP responded to a call on West Main Street in Wendell near North Wallace Street at 5:10 PM.

A 51-year-old male from Jerome, with one passenger, was driving eastbound on West Main Street in a 2023 Ford bucket truck towing a trailer when the driver suffered a medical emergency. The vehicle left the roadway and crashed into the front of a building, where it came to rest.

The crash did not result in the seat-belted passenger needing to be transported for medical attention. The driver was also wearing a seatbelt but succumbed to injuries at the scene. Gooding County EMS and Gooding County Sheriff’s Office assisted ISP in clearing West Main Street and Wallace Street which were blocked for approximately 1.5 hours.
