A 56-year-old Firth man died in a two-vehicle crash in Fort Hall on Tuesday after police said he fled from officers.
Idaho State Police, who are investigating the incident, say Fort Hall police stopped Alrenzo Quagigant on Ross Fork Road near Interstate 15. The man initially pulled over, but then reportedly fled, heading west.
Fort Hall police pursued the man but discontinued the chase before they reached the I-15 interchange. Quagigant continued traveling west, across the overpass of I-15, where he collided with a 2004 Holiday Rambler RV, state police said. He then lost control of the vehicle, which went off the road and overturned, landing on its top.
Quagigant, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene of the crash, state police said.
State police said the driver of the RV, Curtis Goodwin, 71, of West Haven, Utah, and his passengers weren’t injured in the crash.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the incident.
