Police said around 3 a.m. Sunday, a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier was northbound on Rim Road near Melmont Road when the vehicle left the roadway and rolled. It wasn’t immediately clear what may have caused the crash, which occured just south of Nampa.
Neither Martinez nor Silva wore a seat belt, and both were ejected from the car.
