IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

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.
