A 74-year-old Ashton man died Wednesday at a local hospital after being involved in a single-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 20 north of St. Anthony.

Idaho State Police responded to the scene on eastbound U.S. 20 near milepost 351 at about 9:45 a.m., a news release said.

The driver was traveling west in a 2022 Buick Encore GX when he drove off the left shoulder, through the median, across the eastbound lanes and came to rest near the railroad tracks on the right shoulder of eastbound U.S. 20, the release said. The man was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Next of kin have been notified.

The Fremont County Coroner's Office is assisting the Idaho State Police with the investigation.
