Fatal Weekend on Idaho Roads
BOISE, Idaho (AP) __ Three people died in three separate accidents on Idaho highways on Sunday.
The Idaho State Police says 47-year-old Michael Garner, of Caldwell, died when his pickup went off Interstate 84 in Nampa and rolled about 5:50 a.m. About 3:20 a.m., another crash on I-84 near the Idaho-Utah border killed 60-year-old Mark Beaslin, of Taylorsville, Utah.
The ISP says it appears the van driven by a 17-year-old Magna, Utah, teen swerved to avoid an animal in the roadway and then overturned. Beaslin was ejected and died at a hospital.
And a car drove off U.S. 95 near Plummer in Benewah County and struck a tree about 1:20 a.m., killing 42-year-old Bella Petersen, of Aurora, South Dakota. The accidents remain under investigation.
