BOISE, Idaho — A man who died in a wreck on Fairview Avenue Saturday afternoon had been released from prison on parole earlier that day, records show.
The Ada County Coroner's Office identified the man as 40-year-old Daniel Sauvaine of Mountain Home.
Officials say Sauvaine was spotted driving east in oncoming traffic on Fairview Avenue at about 4:25 p.m. His vehicle jumped a curb at the Orchard Street intersection, crashing into a bus stop sign, a business, and a tree on the northeast side of the road.
Sauvaine was rushed to a nearby hospital by paramedics, where he died a short time later.
His official cause and manner of death have not been released, pending the results of toxicology tests. According to the coroner's office, those tests often take several weeks to complete.
Idaho Department of Correction records indicate that Sauvaine had been released on parole Saturday after serving time for drug convictions.
It's unclear what led up to the wreck. Sauvaine's car was the only vehicle involved in the crash.
The incident remains under investigation by the Boise Police Department.
