Fort Hall wreck

Two of the three vehicles involved in a Saturday night crash at Ballard Road and Highway 91 on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. 

Two children were injured in a three-vehicle crash on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation on Saturday night.

The wreck happened at 6:44 p.m. at Ballard Road and Highway 91 north of Chubbuck.

Authorities said the two children injured in the crash are expected to survive. One suffered a broken leg and the other suffered a sprained ankle.

The children were transported via ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello for treatment of their injuries.

All three of the vehicles involved were totaled and Highway 91 was temporarily shut down because of the wreck.

The crash happened after 

Christy Phipps, 24, of Chubbuck, was stopped at a stop sign on the westbound side of Ballard Road at US 91 in a 2009 Dodge Caravan.

Phipps entered the intersection to turn south and was struck by Sara Thompson, 27, of Pocatello, who was driving south on US 91 in a 2019 Chevrolet Trax, authorities said.

The impact forced the vehicles to collide with Taitum Degarmo, 33, of Pocatello. Degarmo was stationary at the eastbound stop sign on Ballard facing US 91 in a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country.



The southbound lane was blocked for about an hour and 45 minutes after the wreck.

All the vehicle occupants were wearing seat belts.



Idaho State Police, Fort Hall Police, Fort Hall Fire, and Fort Hall EMS responded to the scene.
