Crash Hurts Priest River Bikers

A Bonner County Sheriff’s Deputy was involved in a crash that sent two people to the hospital today on U.S. Highway 95 near Sagle Road. Sgt. Phyllis J. Jay, 62, was driving a 2006 Chevy Tahoe west on Sagle Road, according to the Idaho State Patrol. She pulled out from the stop sign and hit a northbound motorcycle driven by Rodney F. Howard, 67, of Priest River. Howard lost control of the motorcycle and both he and his passenger, 66-year-old Catherine J. Howard, were ejected into the roadway. Both Howards were taken to Kootenai Health to be treated for their injuries. Jay was not injured. The crash is under investigation.
