California Man Killed in Crash Near Twin Falls, ID

The crash happened Tuesday morning at 10:04 on I86 between milepost 11 and 12 heading eastbound. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was killed after being ejected when the vehicle rolled.

A 69-year-old male, from Oroville, CA, was driving a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder eastbound I86 at milepost 11.8.

The Nissan failed to maintain lanes and went into the median and rolled. The driver was ejected and succumbed to his injuries at the time of the crash.

Idaho State Police are investigating the accident. An update to the story may come soon with clarification as the police report says the accident happened on I84 at one point and then says I86 later.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years.
