A 29-year-old Post Falls man was killed this afternoon when he failed to negotiate a left curve on Forest Service Road No. 413 in the woods bordering the Kootenai-Shoshone County line. According to a Kootenai County Sheriff's Department report, Vito E. Pistone was dead by the time responders arrived. The crash, which occurred at approximately 4:50 p.m., was located on Forest Service Road No. 413, about 8/10ths of a mile east of FS Road No. 209. Preliminary investigation by the Kootenai County Traffic Team indicates that Pistone failed to negotiate a left curve while travelling eastbound on FSR No. 413, left the roadway and struck at least two trees. Pistone was not wearing a helmet. It is also believed that Pistone was inexperienced in ATV operation. It does not appear that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
