It was a deadly weekend on Idaho highways.

A Caldwell man was killed early Sunday when his vehicle rolled over near a Nampa exit of I-84. Idaho State Police say the vehicle was traveling eastbound when it went off the right side of the highway, and when the driver overcorrected, the vehicle rolled onto its right side, ending on its top nearly 30 feet from the interstate. Police said 47-year-old Michael Garner of Caldwell was wearing his seatbelt.

And a South Dakota woman was killed, also early Sunday, in a one-car crash near Plummer in Benewah County.

Bella Petersen, 42, was traveling west on Agency Road, when police said she failed to negotiate a curve. That's when her vehicle left the road and struck a tree. She was not wearing a seat belt.

And Idaho State Police say a Utah man was killed in yet another accident early Sunday near the Idaho/Utah border.

Police say a van swerved to avoid an animal crossing I-84, causing the vehicle to overturn. Mark Beaslin, 60, of Taylorsville, Utah, was ejected from the van and died later at an area hospital.
