Hayden man pleads in triple fatality

A Hayden man has pleaded not guilty to three counts of vehicular manslaughter in a Sept. 12 crash that killed a Spokane man and his two young daughters. Investigators say Ryan J. Turner, 27, had been drinking before he got on U.S. Highway 95 driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes and collided head-on with a minivan driven by Mathew-Michael T. Baroni. Baroni, 33, and his daughters, Madilyn Baroni, 8, and Molly Baroni, 6, died at the scene, about a mile south of Athol. None of them was wearing seat belts/SR. More here.
