One Person Taken to the Hospital After Crash and Trailer Fire on I-15
(KLIX) - Idaho State Police investigated a crash at 10:50 a.m. on Interstate 15 at milepost 88 south of Blackfoot.
Police say 45-year-old Nicholas Transtrum from Blackfoot was driving southbound in a Ford F250 pulling a food truck trailer when he hit the guard rail to the right side of the roadway.
Hitting the rail caused the trailer to flip and catch on fire. Police said Transtrum and his two passengers, 19-year-old Landan Van Cleave from Blackfoot and 20-year-old Teigen Erickson from Ammon were wearing their seatbelts.
Transtrum was taken by ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital in Blackfoot.
