Man with Several DUI’s Arrested in Multi-Vehicle Crash

An Idaho Falls man was arrested Thursday for his role in multi-vehicle crash on South Holmes Avenue on Thursday evening.

The Post Register reports, Jeffrey Melgaard, 57, was driving north on Holmes in a pickup truck when he hit a car stopped at the light near the intersection with Eighth Street. The impact caused the stopped car to hit the car in front of it, in turn causing that car to do the same.

Camera footage from the nearby Chevron gas station revealed Melgaard fled the scene.

Melgaard has multiple previous charges for driving under the influence in Jefferson, Madison and Bonneville counties.
