IDAHO FALLS — Two separate crashes Tuesday morning sent at least three people to the hospital.

The first crash happened around 8:09 a.m. at the intersection of East Ririe Highway and North 45th East between a car and a minivan.

First responders rushed to the scene. Idaho Falls Fire Department spokeswoman Kerry Hammon says two women — a 25-year-old and 35-year-old — were transported to a hospital by ambulance in stable condition.

The second crash happened at 8:10 a.m. at North River Road and West 145th East. Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bryan Lovell said a juvenile in a Chevy Blazer was driving eastbound and when they went over a bridge they lost control because of the slick conditions.

The SUV was then hit by a semi-truck in the oncoming lane and the semi-truck then collided with a Cadillac Escalade that was behind the Blazer.

A 15-year-old girl in the Blazer was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Hammon.

“Roads are deceivingly slick, especially bridges, so people need to slow down and use caution,” Hammon said.
