Fatal crash victim ID'd


Bryon T. Sorensen, 22, of Rigby, was identified as the man killed in Monday's fatal crash at Channing Way and Sunnyside Road.

The crash occurred just before 5 p.m.

Sorensen was driving a Jeep Cherokee west on Sunnyside when his vehicle collided with a Dodge Challenger driven by 21-year-old Antonio Nunez of Idaho Falls. At the time, Nunez was turning left from the eastbound lane of Sunnyside onto Channing, according to an Idaho Falls Police Department news release.

The collision caused the Jeep to roll and strike a bicyclist, 37-year-old Jason P. Burnett of Idaho Falls. Burnett was standing on the sidewalk, the release said.

Sorensen was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Burnett also was transported to EIRMC, where he was treated and released for nonlife-threatening injuries. Nunez was treated at the scene.

Idaho Falls police spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen said police have not determined who was at fault in the accident and no charges have been filed.

The crash remains under investigation.
