Exit 80 Crash Closes I-15
Update: The crash scene has been cleared and both lanes of northbound Interstate 15 have reopened to traffic. A rollover accident caused both North-bound lanes of I-15 near Exit 80 to close for about 90 minutes Monday.

DeSilva lost control of the vehicle and it overturned near the Fort Hall Exit.

DeSilva and his family were transported to Portneuf Medical Center by ground ambulance.
