Head-On Crash Kills BonnerCo Worker

A Bonner County employee (John Hanson, 61, of Colburn) was killed Friday morning in a head-on collision that also forced one woman (Jennifer Gibson, 26, of Priest River) to be airlifted to a Spokane hospital in serious condition. Idaho State Police received a call of a vehicle on fire at 7:50 a.m. on Highway 2 approximately five miles west of Sandpoint at milepost 23. The worker was driving a Bonner County Roads Department truck, which was carrying diesel fuel. The road was closed for more than 3 hours/KREM2. More here. ISP reporter (pdf) here.
