The vehicle rolled and came to rest on its wheels in the left lane of the interstate, according to state police.

A 23-year-old woman from Idaho Falls and a juvenile were also in the vehicle at the time of the crash, state police said. All three occupants of the SUV were wearing seat belts and were transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital.
