Idaho Falls, ID (May 22, 2024) – The identities of six victims killed in an accident on U.S. Highway 20 in Idaho Falls over the weekend have now been released, according to local authorities investigating the incident.

According to Bonneville County Coroner Rick Taylor, the victims include 43-year-old Abel Mejía Martínez, 26-year-old Pedro Manuel Alcantar Mejía, 24-year-old Brandon Ponce Gallegos, 20-year-old Jose Guadalupe Sánchez Medina, 32-year-old Luis Enrique Sereno Perez, and 36-year-old Javier Gomez Alcantar. The accident also sent 10 others in the two-car fatal crash to the hospital. According to a press release from the Idaho State Police, the accident occurred at 5:20 a.m. when a Dodge Ram pickup truck was driving on U.S. 20 heading east near the Lindsay Boulevard exit and drove into the westbound lane, hitting a white van. However, Idaho State Police are still investigating the collision and have not released any more information.

Our deepest condolences are with the deceased victims' families. Our thoughts are with the injured in hopes of their full recovery.
