An Idaho Falls man suspected in a weekend stabbing has died in a car crash on U.S. Highway 26 near Ririe.
The Idaho State Police says 23-year-old Tay W. Misseldine was eastbound at about 3 a.m. Monday when he drifted off the road and overcorrected before hitting a sign and a fence and rolling down an embankment.
The ISP says Misseldine was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene.
As troopers investigated the crash, they learned Misseldine was the suspect in a stabbing in Idaho Falls on Sunday evening. He had led police and Bonneville County deputies on a short pursuit. Officers said they ended the chase because they knew who was driving.
No information about the stabbing victim was immediately released.
