Idaho's "deadliest days" are only getting more deadly.  To date, at least 66 people have died on Idaho roads since Memorial Day.

On Saturday, August 4, Boise Police confirmed that the latest victim was a driver who was involved in in a two-vehicle crash a day earlier. BPD continues to investigate the circumstances of the incident which occurred near the intersection of Linda Vista Lane and Fairview Avenue. That's where witnesses told police  one vehicle was traveling south on Linda Vista and turning onto Fairview when it was struck by another vehicle traveling west on Fairview. Shortly after the wreck, one of the driver's was cited for failing to yield on a left turn; but after police were notified that one of the drivers had died, BPD detectives took over the case as a death investigation. The Ada County Coroner will release the identity of the victim pending notification of next of kin.

Law enforcement agencies across Idaho remind all motorists that the stretch of time between Memorial Day and Labor Day have been unfortunately labeled as the "100 deadliest days" on roadways.
