Woman injured in Highway 95 crash with semi


A Sandpoint woman was hospitalized this morning after hitting a semi tractor-trailer and driving off an embankment on Highway 95 near Sagle.

Sierra J. Anderson, 28, was northbound in a Kia Spectra negotiating a curve when she crossed the center line and hit a southbound semi, driven by Ken Hofer, 50, of Manitoba, Canada about 10:41 a.m., according to Idaho State Police.

Anderson ran off the road and down an embankment. She was taken to Bonner General Hospital where she is listed in stable condition. Hofer was uninjured.

Police say alcohol was not a factor. The crash is still under investigation.
