CLARK FORK — Two people were killed and three juveniles were injured in a head-on crash on East Spring Creek Road on Wednesday.

Idaho State Police said Vicki Sue Dettwiler was headed northbound in a 1994 Nissan Sentra when she crossed into the opposing lane of travel while attempting to negotiate a left-hand curve and collided with a southbound 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck. Dettwiler, a 39-year-old from Clark Fork, was killed, as was passenger Jamy L. McCoy, a 57-year-old from Cape Canaveral, Fla.

Three juveniles, two of whom were in safety restraints, were also in the vehicle and were injured, according to Spokane TV station KREM. One of the children was reportedly airlifted from the scene and was listed in serious condition on Thursday.

State police said Dettwiler, formerly known as Vicki Hunter, was not wearing a seatbelt. However, contrary to early reports, her passenger Jamy McCoy, was wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the pickup Kyler A. Burnham, 21, of Sandpoint, was reportedly uninjured in the collision.

The crash occurred in the 500 block of the East Spring Creek at approximately 5:31 p.m., according to the Bonner County Sheriff’s Office. The collision closed the road for approximately three hours.
