At approximately 1:10pm this afternoon Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies and Idaho Falls Fire responded to the Taylor Mountain Rd at S. Ammon Rd. to a report of a one vehicle rollover crash.
As emergency personnel arrived they located a White Jeep Cherokee that had rolled down an embankment approximately 70ft. The driver, a male adult in his late 50’s, was found inside and treated in scene by ambulance personnel. A witness to the crash observed the Jeep at a high rate of speed coming around the corner when it lost control and rolled down the embankment.
Deputies found evidence of alcohol use and the driver had the appearance of being very intoxicated. The driver was taken into custody and the investigation is continuing at this time. There were no other occupants in the Jeep and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office reminds motorists that driving under the influence of any intoxicating substance puts you and the public at risk. Never drive a vehicle or motorcycle after you’ve been drinking or using drugs, always wear your seatbelt and pay attention to your driving.
