Fort Hall, Idaho (KMVT-TV) An elderly woman dies in a crash involving two Heyburn residents on Friday, north of Fort Hall.

93–year old Blackfoot resident Maxine Cushman was driving north on I–15 in her 2002 Honda Odyssey when she came upon a slower moving vehicle.

Cushman's van suffered extreme front end damage and she died at the scene.

Higley and his passenger, 47–year old Lisa Higley, also of Heyburn didn't sustain any injuries.

All occupants were wearing their seat-belts. The crash is under investigation.
