Two rollovers took place in the Inkom area Wednesday morning.
In the first, a semi-truck blocked traffic near Inkom for three hours. Around 6 a.m., Eugene Woodward, 37, of West Jordan, Utah, was driving southbound on the Interstate 15 onramp at milepost 57 in a 2000 Peterbilt truck when he lost control. The truck went off the right shoulder and rolled down the embankment, coming to rest on its side.
Woodward was not wearing his seat belt, the Idaho State Police said. No information on Woodward's condition was released.
Although the onramp was closed for three hours while the crash was being investigated, as of 9:30 a.m., it was open. The semi is still on the onramp, but vehicles can get around the crash. Motorists are encouraged to use caution.
There was a second rollover involving one SUV. This was on southbound I-15 six miles south of Inkom.
In that accident, Shani Tennant, 36, of Pocatello, was driving a 1999 Ford Expedition. Tennant lost control of the SUV, went off the left shoulder, rolled and came to rest in the median.
Tennant had a 2-year-old in the vehicle. Tennant was wearing her seat belt, and the toddler was properly restrained in a car seat, Idaho State Police said. Both were taken to Portneuf Medical Center by ground ambulance.
The crash did not block traffic.
ISP is investigating both wrecks.
