SALMON, Idaho -

A Salmon man was killed in a one vehicle rollover on US 93 at around 5 pm Thursday.  Idaho State Police said Garrett Nicolson, 26, was southbound when he drove off the right shoulder of the highway, over-corrected and lost control of his vehicle.

Reports said his 2001 Hyundai Elantra struck a rocky embankment on the east side of the road and the car rolled several times.  Nicolson was not wearing a safety restraint and was thrown from the vehicle.  He was transported by ambulance to Steel Memorial Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Investigation of the crash was continuing Friday.
