Police pursuit leads to two-car wreck in Blackfoot

A pursuit led to a two-car crash and the northbound lane of U.S. Highway 91 being blocked for two hours Friday evening.

A Blackfoot police officer was in pursuit of a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am traveling southbound on the highway at South Shilling.

A second Blackfoot officer spiked the vehicle as it passed, according to the Idaho State Police. This caused the driver, Daniel R. Wallace, 34 of Chubbuck, to lose control. Wallace drove into the oncoming lane of travel and struck a 2005 Kia Spectra being driven by David J. Contreras, 17, of Blackfoot.

Wallace and his passenger, Kylee R. Borjas-Black, 23 of Pocatello, fled on foot after the vehicle crashed. They were both later arrested by the Blackfoot Police Department.

Contreras and his three passengers, Porfirio Juarez, 17, of Blackfoot, Getzely Huerta-Valenzuela, 15, of Aberdeen, and Diego J. Gonzalez, 17, of Moreland, were all transported by ground ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital.

The northbound lane was blocked for two hours while crews worked to remove the wreckage.

The Idaho State Police did not immediately say why Wallace was being pursued.
