Idaho man killed in rollover crash

Compiled from staff and wire reports The Spokesman-Review

A 24-year-old Genesee, Idaho, man was killed in a one-vehicle rollover on Highway 128 on Sunday, the Lewiston Police Department said.

Police said Michael G. Stapleton appeared to be driving west near the Idaho-Washington border at 1:22 a.m. when he lost control of his 2001 Toyota pickup and went off the north shoulder of the road. The pickup traveled through a field, overturned and came to rest on its wheels. Police said Stapleton was ejected.

The crash is still under investigation by Lewiston police and the Idaho State Police.

Trumpeters thriving

POCATELLO, Idaho The population of trumpeter swans appears to be staying strong, wildlife managers said. A part-time biologist counted nearly 500 swans and cygnets during a recent flight over the animals’ habitat in southeastern Idaho.

The trumpeter swan population plummeted to near extinction in the early 19th century.
