SAGLE — One person was killed and eight others injured in an early evening crash Wednesday that blocked the highway for several hours.

Idaho State Police said in a press release that a black 2010 Dodge Caravan driven by Christopher T. Langan, 34, of Bonners Ferry was northbound at about 6:39 p.m. attempting to pass a slow-moving vehicle in the southbound lanes on Highway 95 about two miles south of Sagle. The minivan collided head-on with a maroon 1997 Nissan Altima driven by James E. Moore, 56, of Sandpoint.

Moore succumbed to his injuries Thursday at Kootenai Health.

Passengers in the Caravan were Anneli F. Langan, 31, of Bonners Ferry, Idaho and four minor children.
