Idaho State Police reported a chain reaction car crash involving three vehicles on I-15 north of Blackfoot. The driver of a passenger vehicle struck the back of a minivan after the minivan had stopped for traffic on Interstate 15. A chain reaction car crash then occurred due to the force of impact causing the minivan to hit the car in front of them. All drivers were reportedly wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. One driver was transported by ground ambulance to a nearby hospital for evaluation of injuries. A lane of traffic was blocked for about an hour and a half as crews worked to clear the accident.
