Pickup accident injures two

MONDAY, JULY 9, 2007

An Idaho woman was hospitalized after her small truck was hit twice Sunday afternoon along U.S. Highway 95 near Cocolalla, Idaho State Police said.

Sandra Gibbs was southbound in a 1990 Ford Ranger on U.S. 95, slowed to make a left turn and was rear-ended by 18-year-old Chad Adams, of Sandpoint, who also was driving a 1990 Ford Ranger.

The collision pushed Gibbs into oncoming traffic, where she was hit a second time by a semi-truck driven by Ben Potzkai, 54, of Kelowna, B.C., the ISP said. The highway was closed for two hours at mile post 462.

Gibbs and Adams suffered unspecified injuries in the 2:40 p.m. accident and were admitted to Bonner General Hospital.
