RE: Fatality crash
At 4:45pm last Saturday night (Dec. 4th), Bonneville County Sheriffs Deputies and Idaho Falls Fire were dispatched to a one vehicle injury crash on N. 5th W. at Fairway Blvd. Upon arrival Deputies located a 2003 Honda Accord that had went off the roadway North bound on 5th W. and collided with a utility pole. The vehicle was occupied by one male driver, identified as 40 year old Brandon Smith of Bonneville County, who was deceased on scene.
Smith was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and Deputies suspect alcohol may be involved. The crash is still under investigation and no further details are available at this time.
