KAMIAH, Idaho - One man was killed in a crash on US12 west of Kamiah.

According to Idaho State Police, a Jeep Cherokee driven by 69-year-old Douglas Hurlburt of Cottonwood, was traveling westbound toward Lewiston Saturday.

The vehicle left the roadway for an unknown reason and hit a rock wall, flipped end over end several times before coming to rest on its roof.

Police say a female juvenile passenger was able to crawl out of the vehicle. A passerby removed Hurlburt from his seat belt and pulled him away as the vehicle caught fire.
