Pedestrian killed in Downtown Sandpoint collision

Idaho State Police say a pedestrian was struck and killed by a car in the middle of Downtown Sandpoint.

The collision happened at about 4:30 Thursday evening near the intersection of 5th and Cedar, the same route Highway 95 takes as it winds through Sandpoint.

Bonner County Sheriff’s deputies are assisting Idaho State Police with the crash, who as of 9:00 p.m., were still at the scene of the collision.

Details are few as law enforcement officials wait to release more information after they can notify the pedestrian’s next of kin.
