A father and son from Coeur d’Alene died in a head-on crash this morning on an icy stretch of U.S. Highway 95 north of Athol. Two other people were seriously injured in the collision at Granite Hill in Bonner County, the Idaho State Police said.

Norman Flom, 67, and Jason Flom, 35, were killed after the 1987 Toyota pickup driven by Norman Flom crossed the center line and struck a northbound 2007 Chevy Silverado. The two were not wearing seatbelts, police said.

The driver of the Silverado, Robert Winey, 51, of Bonners Ferry, and his passenger, Patricia Winey, 46, of Post Falls, were taken to Kootenai Medical Center in Coeur d’Alene, where they were listed in serious condition this afternoon. They were wearing seatbelts, investigators said.

Traffic was reduced to one lane for several hours.
