Bellevue woman killed in highway rollover

ISP reports that roads were slick

Express Staff Writer

A 44-year-old Bellevue woman died following a single-vehicle rollover Saturday morning on Interstate 84 near the Idaho-Utah border.

Idaho State Police identified the woman as Rosa Woodall. Woodall died of her injuries while being transported by air ambulance to McCady Hospital in Ogden, Utah, ISP reported.

The accident occurred at about 8:15 a.m. on slick pavement east of the Juniper Rest Area and a few miles northwest of the state border. ISP reported that the victim’s husband, Michael Woodall, 54, was driving eastbound in a red 2004 Ford F250 “when he attempted to change lanes to pass a slower vehicle.” He then “lost control the truck, traveled off the left shoulder of the road and overturned in the median.”

ISP reported that Michael Woodall and an 11-year-old daughter needed to be extricated from the vehicle and that three other juvenile passengers were transported by ground ambulance to Cassia Regional Medical Center in Burley.

The accident remained under investigation Tuesday. ISP reported that Michael Woodall was the only vehicle occupant wearing a seatbelt.
