— A rollover accident on Old Highway 7 last week claimed the life of a Grangeville man.

Howard E. Donaldson, 73, died at the scene last Thursday, April 14, according to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office (ICSO).

The crash was reported at 1:12 p.m., approximately milepost 5. According to ICSO, Donaldson was driving a 1994 Dodge pickup northbound near Jessup Road when he started to leave the right side of the roadway and overcorrected. The pickup crossed the centerline and went off the left side of the roadway where it rolled multiple times, coming to rest on its passenger side in a field.

Donaldson was ejected and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Assisting ICSO at the scene were Syringa Ambulance, Idaho State Police and Blackmer Funeral Home.
