The Star-News

A Moscow couple was killed Wednesday morning in a two-vehicle accident about three miles north of McCall on Idaho 55 near the Little Ski Hill, Idaho State Police Trooper Mike Sherbondy said.

Carol Martin, 67, and Don Martin, 75, both of Moscow, were killed when Carol, who was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, drifted into the southbound lane.

The car struck a 2009 Ford bus, operated by Treasure Valley Transit between Riggins and McCall, driven by Jeanette Dames, 57, of Pollock, Sherbondy said.

Carol Martin died at the scene of the accident. Don Martin was flown to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center by air ambulance where he later died.

Dames was taken to St. Luke’s McCall where she was treated and released. A lone passenger in the bus was also taken to St. Luke’s McCall with unknown injuries. The passenger was not identified.

Ambulances from McCall, Donnelly and New Meadows responded to the scene along with Adams County sheriff deputies and McCall firefighters.
