Four injured in Post Falls-area crash


Four people were transferred to Kootenai Medical Center after sustaining non-life-threatening injuries in a two-car car crash at 5:35 this evening.

A 2000 Pontiac Montana minivan driven by Michael W. Lyman, 19, was travelling south on Greensferry Road failed to stop at a stop sign, hitting a 2006 Toyota Camry, driven by Rebekah D. Bryan, 34.

Both Lyman and his passenger, Candice M. Lyman, 57, were taken to Kootenai Medical Center via ambulance.

Rescue personnel had to pull Bryant and her passenger, Jacqueline J. Bryant, 60, from the vehicle before they were transported to Kootenai Medical Center, said Kootenai County deputies.

Lyman has since been released, but Jacqueline Bryant, Rebekah Bryant and Candice Lyman are still being treated. The extent of their injuries is not known.

Lyman has been cited for failing to stop at a posted stop sign and failing to display insurance information, deputies said.

The intersection was closed for nearly two hours while officers with the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by the Post Falls Police Department and the Idaho State Police, investigated the crash.
