A two-car crash on Interstate 90 in Post Falls on Tuesday shut down the eastbound lanes and sent three people to the hospital, according to an Idaho State Police news release.
At about 12:30 p.m., 80-year-old Margaret J. Hyatt, of Nelson, British Columbia, was stopped in a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe on the shoulder of I-90 near Pleasantview Road. Hyatt moved into the eastbound lanes in front of a 2007 GMC Sierra driven by Sandra L. Bodak, 59, of Rathdrum.
Bodak’s and Hyatt’s cars collided, injuring both drivers and a 20-year-old passenger in Bodak’s car, according to the news release.
Hyatt’s car came to rest in the eastbound lanes of I-90 and blocked all lanes for about 30 minutes.
All were transported to Kootenai Health in ambulances.
Everyone involved in the crash was wearing a seat belt, and alcohol wasn’t a factor, according to the news release. The investigation is ongoing.
