DAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - One person was killed in a rollover accident, along Woodruff Avenue, Friday afternoon in Idaho Falls.
Around 4:30 p.m., Idaho Falls Bonneville County Emergency Dispatch received reports of an accident in the area of 1200 N Woodruff Avenue. Several Idaho Falls Police Officers, a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputy, and emergency medical personnel from Idaho Falls Fire responded.
Idaho Falls Police Public Information Officer Jessica Clements says, "Responders found a single vehicle off the roadway upside down. The driver and sole occupant had been ejected from the vehicle. First responders rendered medical aide and immediately transported the individual via Idaho Falls Fire ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Despite the best efforts of medical providers, the person succumbed to their injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
From the initial investigation, it appears the driver lost control of the vehicle which left the roadway and rolled before coming to rest on its roof. At this time, alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash. The investigation is ongoing and no further information will be released at this time."
