Idaho woman dies after pickup rolls into river


An Idaho woman died Wednesday night when her pickup truck went off U.S. Highway 2 west of Laclede, Idaho, and went into the Pend Oreille River.

Judy Cruzan, 52, of Kootenai, was headed east on the highway 22.5 miles southwest of Sandpoint when she lost control of her 2007 Nissan Frontier, according to Idaho State Police.

Her pickup left the road off the right shoulder, striking a signpost and guardrail before overturning and going down an embankment into the river about 9 p.m., police said. She died at the scene.
