Deadly Relay: Accident in Race Kills One, Injures Another

BLANCHARD, Idaho. - A driver struck a pair of Spokane to Sandpoint relay participants, killing one and seriously injuring the other around 6:30 a.m.

46 year-old Patricia Lambie was riding a bicycle as a support person for a 17 year-old female running the Spokane to Sandpoint Relay Race. The two were on the west shoulder of Highway 41 near Blanchard, Idaho when a van, driven by 31 year-old Bowdeen Kahuhu, crossed the center line into the opposing travel lane and onto the shoulder, hitting both Lambie and the jogger she was with. Lambie died and the juvenile was seriously injured.

Police believe that alcohol was a factor. Kahuhu was charged with manslaughter.

This is the second time in as many days that a car has hit runners in the Spokane to Sandpoint Relay Race. Yesterday a runner was hit on the Newport Highway near Colbert. She was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. The driver in that accident was not believed to be at fault.

UPDATE: Relay Runner Hit By Car On Newport Hwy; Seriously Injured
