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 at about 5:50 a.m. Sunday.

At about 3:20 a.m. Sunday, another crash on I-84 near the Idaho-Utah border claimed the life of 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 later died at a hospital.

And a car drove off U.S. 95 near Plummer in Benewah County and struck a tree at about 1:20 a.m. Sunday, killing 42-year-old Bella Petersen, of Aurora, South Dakota.

The accidents remain under investigation.
