Print Article

An 80-year-old woman died late Thursday from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash June 18 in the east lanes of Interstate 90 near Pleasantview Road in Post Falls.

Margaret J. Hyatt, 80, of Nelson, British Columbia, driving a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, was reportedly stopped along the shoulder of I-90 at Milepost 2. Sandra L. Bodak, 59, of Rathdrum, was traveling east on I-90 in a 2007 GMC Sierra when Hyatt moved from the right shoulder into the lane in front of Bodak.

The vehicles collided. Hyatt’s vehicle came to rest in the eastbound lanes of I-90, while Bodak’s vehicle came to rest in the median. The roadway was blocked by Hyatt’s vehicle for about 30 minutes.

Hyatt, Bodak, and the passenger in Bodak’s vehicle, Breanna A. Bodak, 20, of Rathdrum, were all transported by ambulance to Kootenai Health. Hyatt died from her injuries in Nelson, British Columbia.

All subjects involved in the crash were wearing seat belts. Alcohol was not a factor. - Kaye Thornbrugh
