Idaho Falls, ID (May 19, 2024) – Police are investigating a car accident involving a larger passenger van traveling through Idaho Falls, which resulted in six deaths.

Idaho State Police are investigating a fatal car accident involving an eastbound Ram pickup and a westbound Chevrolet passenger van that blocked both lanes on U.S. 20 for more than five hours, according to a news release from police. The roads were shut down while crews cleared debris, and the westbound lane was closed for an additional hour while police investigated.

The release says the collision occurred Saturday at around 5:30 a.m., near Milepost 308 in Bonneville County when the pickup driver drove left of center and crashed into the van. According to police, the van's driver and five other passengers were pronounced dead at the scene, and nine other passengers were transported to a local hospital in ambulances. The driver of the pickup was also transported to a local hospital. Idaho State Police are still investigating the collision and have not released any more information.
