On Monday, April 9, 2012, at approximately 8:09 PM, Idaho State Police investigated a one-vehicle rollover, fatality crash on westbound Interstate 84 near milepost 34 in Nampa, ID.

Shawn Sant, 47, of Ogden, Utah, was traveling west on Interstate 84 near milepost 34 in a 1998 Dodge Neon when the vehicle went off the right side of the road and rolled. Neither Sant nor his passenger, Wendy Hoff, age 49, also of Ogden, Utah, were wearing seatbelts.
