Chet D. Johnson

— A Payette man died in a single-vehicle accident along U.S. Highway 95 this past weekend.

Chet D. Johnson, 31, succumbed to his injuries at the scene and was taken to Blackmer Funeral home.

The Idaho County Sheriff's Office reports on Oct. 28, at 12:30 AM, Corporal Mike Chlebowski responded to a fatal accident on U.S. 95 near milepost 198.

According to ICSO, Johnson was southbound in a 2001 Dodge pickup pulling an empty gooseneck livestock trailer when he went off the east side of the highway impacting the rock wall.

He was not wearing a seatbelt, and alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Family notification has been made.
