UPDATED: Wed., Oct. 23, 2019

A woman involved in a car crash Sunday in the parking lot of Bob’s 21 Club in Post Falls died Tuesday.

Jennifer L. Columbia, 49, died after falling from the passenger of a moving pickup truck, according to the Idaho State Police.

She was transported to Kootenai Health and died Tuesday from her injuries.

ISP previously said Columbia was struck when a truck was reversing out of the bar. In a Wednesday release, ISP did not say whether investigators still believe the woman was struck by the vehicle.

ISP, which could not be reached for clarification, did not say whether the woman’s fall was accidental or whether they suspect foul play.

Dwayne A. Bradley, 46, was driving the truck out of the Bob’s 21 Club parking lot and pulling onto North William Street at about 7 p.m. when Columbia fell.

Bradley was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and driving under the influence on Sunday.
