A 35-year-old Sandpoint woman died in a single-car crash north of Athol Tuesday evening.
A Nissan sedan, driven by Jasmine G. Dandurand, was traveling north on Highway 95 at about 8:30 p.m. when the car failed to negotiate a left turn and crashed near Careywood Road, according to Idaho State Police.
Dandurand’s car entered a ditch on the northbound side of the highway, turned sideways and struck a telephone pole, according to ISP. The car then started to roll and Dandurand, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle.
Dandurand died at the scene, ISP said. The northbound lane of the highway was blocked for about three hours for an investigation of the crash, which is ongoing.
