Sun., Oct. 17, 2010, 3:03 p.m.

Two others hospitalized

A Post Falls woman died early this morning at Kootenai Medical Center following a two-car crash that occurred Saturday afternoon. Two other people remain hospitalized.

Candice M. Lyman, 57, died about 12 hours after the accident, said Sgt. Kevin Smart of the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department. Smart said the accident is still under investigation and the sheriff’s department does not know whether Lyman’s death resulted from the accident or previous medical conditions.

Lyman was a passenger in the 2000 Pontiac Montana minivan driven by Michael W. Lyman, 19, also of Post Falls, when it failed to stop at a stop sign, the sheriff’s department reported. The minivan hit a 2006 Toyota Camry driven by Rebekah D. Bryant, 34.

Bryant and Jacqueline J. Bryant, 60, both of Post Falls, remain hospitalized in fair condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Michael Lyman, who was treated and released from the hospital, was headed south on Greensferry Road at the intersection with Hayden Avenue around 5:30 p.m. when the accident occurred, Smart said. The Bryant vehicle had been westbound on Hayden, he said.

Michael Lyman was cited for failing to stop at a posted stop sign and failing to display insurance information, the sheriff’s department said.
