Two Great Falls teens killed in I-90 collision

POST FALLS, Idaho. - Two teens were killed and several other people were injured in a collision on I-90 Tuesday night after a woman lost control of her SUV and crossed into oncoming traffic. 

The collision happened just after 6 p.m. Tuesday in the eastbound lanes of I-90 near Post Falls, Idaho. 

Authorities say 34-year-old Tracy Moore was heading west in an SUV and had three passengers: her daughter, 16-year-old Destiny, her daughter's boyfriend, 17-year-old Michael Martinez, and a 5-year-old child.

According to witnesses, Moore was driving too fast for conditions before she lost control of her vehicle and crossed over the median into oncoming traffic.

Moore's SUV was struck by three other vehicles, a red passenger car, a pick-up truck with a snowplow blade attached to the front and an SUV.

Destiny was pronounced dead on scene and her boyfriend, Martinez, was taken to the hospital with a serious brain injury where he was later pronounced dead.

Moore and the child were transported to a Spokane hospital with non life-threatening injuries where they remain as of Wednesday morning in satisfactory condition.

Two people in the red passenger car, Marcia Thomas, 57, and Richard Thomas, 75, were both injured in the accident. Marcia is currently at a Spokane hospital where she underwent surgery Wednesday morning and authorities say she remains in a coma. Thomas was transported to Kootenai Medical Center and was then taken to Harborview in Seattle. It was incorrectly reported earlier that he had been released from Kootenai Medical Center.

The driver of the pick-up, 27-year-old Evan Kinnick, was taken to the hospital following the collision and has since been released.

None of the three people in the SUV that struck Moore's SUV were injured.

Moore, of Great Falls, Montana was heading to Seattle for her daughter's dialysis treatment.

Destiny and Martinez were both students at Great Falls High School. Great Falls High School Superintendent Cheryl Crawley said Destiny was a quiet girl and very friendly, adding that she was always surrounded by friends. Martinez was a soccer player for the past three years. Both will "tremendously missed" said Crawley.
