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.

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.
