A Ririe and Rigby resident were injured in a crash Feb. 3 on U.S. Highway 26 at mile marker 343 west of Ririe.

Lawrence Meleskie, 66, of Ririe, was driving westbound on Highway 26 in a 2003 GMC Sierra. J. Scott Shipton, 56, of Rigby, was driving eastbound on Highway 26 in a 2017 Nissan Murano. Meleskie attempted to pass a snow-plow, failed to maintain lanes crossing over the center line, and struck the Murano.

Both Meleskie and Shipton were wearing a seatbelt. They were transported by ground ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

The lanes of travel were blocked for approximately one hour.
