BOISE -- Idaho State Police say a 19-year-old Boise man who was killed in a one-vehicle rollover had been huffing from a canister of an Dust-Off to get high.

Cameron Zaharioudakis died Monday night. His passenger was injured.

ISP Capt. Steve Richardson said Zaharioudakis was speeding while he and his passenger were vying for control of a can of Dust-Off when the Jeep crashed. Dust-Off is a compressed gas used to remove dust from computers and other electronic equipment.

Richardson says Boise-area ISP troopers do not recall investigating a fatal crash involving huffing. He says without toxicology tests, it's unclear how much of a factor inhalation of the gas played in Monday night's crash.
