The Ada County Coroner's Office has identified a 34-year-old Boise man who died in an early morning crash in Garden City.

Adrian Shaw, of Boise, died from blunt force trauma due to a motor vehicle crash after a Mazda SUV crashed into a tree around 1:30 a.m. on Riverside Drive at Lakefront. Two other people were injured.  Police say speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.

“This is a sad reminder that if you have been consuming alcohol don't drive. If you plan on consuming alcohol make a plan before you begin drinking. Once you begin drinking your judgment is impaired, and you may make a horrible decision which could result in injury or death to yourself or others,” said Garden City Police Lt. Tom Patterson.  “We are well within the 100 deadliest days of the year (Memorial Day - Labor Day) for traffic collisions, where numerous people are injured or killed each year, please drive safely."

The Ada County Crash Reconstruction Team is investigating the incident in conjunction with Garden City Police.  No charges have been filed at this time.
