Connie Lach Obituary, Death – The victim of this collision, a woman named Connie Ray Lach from eastern Idaho, was determined to be 59 years old by the coroner for Bonneville County, Rick Taylor. She lost her battle with illness while she was receiving care at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. IDAHO FALLS — IDAHO The Idaho Falls Bonneville County Emergency Dispatch Center received a report of a multiple-vehicle collision on South 15th East near the Sandy Downs Arena at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday night. According to the information provided by the caller, a woman was trapped between two vehicles. Responding to the call were members of the Idaho Falls Police Department and the Idaho Falls Fire and EMS departments.
After their arrival, the members of the Idaho Falls Fire and EMS Department took the woman straight to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. After beginning their investigation into the crash, the officers of the Idaho Falls Police Department discovered that the woman’s vehicle had gone off the road. The woman’s vehicle became stuck in the snow, and a second individual in a separate vehicle was attempting to assist the woman in getting her vehicle unstuck and back onto the road. The first automobile was stopped, and the second car was parked behind it. Vehicle number two was pushed into car number one when it was struck by a third vehicle that was also traveling on the roadway. At the moment of the collision, the woman was located between the first and second vehicle. As a result of being wedged between the two automobiles, she sustained serious injuries.
In spite of the best efforts of the medical staff, the woman, who was 59 years old and lived in eastern Idaho, was unable to overcome the effects of her injuries and was pronounced dead. The woman’s relatives have been informed about the situation. At this point, it appears that the icy roads were a significant factor in contributing to this event. In order to conduct their investigation and clean up the site, the Idaho Falls Police Department shut down a portion of the street. The route was blocked off until a few minutes before 1 in the morning. The crash is still being investigated by the Idaho Falls Police Department, and there is no other information that can be released at this time. The family of the woman who was killed and everyone else who was impacted by this occurrence have my profound condolences, on behalf of the Idaho Falls Police Department.
