POCATELLO, Idaho -- Police in eastern Idaho say they are investigating after a pickup crashed off Interstate 15 in Pocatello and the man inside had a gunshot wound.

Pocatello Police Sgt. Justin Buck tells the Idaho State Journal that a weapon was recovered inside the vehicle and it appears the wound was self-inflicted. He says there's no evidence the gunshot came from outside the vehicle before the crash about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

The man was taken to Portneuf Medical Center and underwent surgery.

Buck says witnesses to the crash reported the man was alone in the vehicle before it went off the road.

The vehicle went through a fence and stopped in at the back of a business.
