   PRIEST RIVER — A Bonner County woman was killed Wednesday night after crashing into an embankment along Eastside Road. Idaho State Police said Laurie Lamphere was driving southbound in a 1993 Eagle Vision when she failed to negotiate a curve and went off the east side of the road. Her full-size sedan then crashed into the embankment. Lamphere, 58, was wearing a seat belt, according to an ISP news release.

   The crash happened in the 800 block of Eastside at about 6:30 p.m.

Lamphere is the eighth person to perish this year in a traffic accident in Bonner County. According to the Idaho Transportation Department’s Office of Highway Safety, it’s the highest number of fatal crashes since 2008, when 11 people were killed.

   Six people were killed in Bonner County in 2009 and seven were killed in 2010 and 2011, according to ITD.
