The occupants of the minivan, Dale L. Olsen, 82, and Dorothy N. Olsen, 78, both of Bonners Ferry were taken to Boundary Community Hospital.

Jones, 39, was also taken to Boundary Community, but was transferred to Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene and again to Harborview Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries.
