Updated 11:51 a.m.: Two North Idaho families are in the hospital after a head-on collision on about two miles south of Sagle at around 6:39 p.m. on the eve of Thanksgiving Wednesday.

According to Idaho State Police and family reports, Christopher Langan, 34, Bonners Ferry, was driving north on Highway 95 in a black 2010 Dodge Caravan with his wife, Anneli, 31, and four minor children, when he attempted to pass a slow moving vehicle.

While in the southbound lane of travel, he hit a maroon 1997 Nissan Altima driven by James Moore, 56, Amy Moore, 50, both of Sandpoint, and one minor child, near mile 466.5. The collision shut down Highway 95 for approximately two hours.

Everyone in both vehicles were wearing seatbelts, and, despite some severe injuries, all survived, were transported to Kootenai Health. One person, James Moore, was said to be in extremely critical condition.

At 11:40 a.m., the Idaho State Police reissued their press release, reporting that James Moore died of his injuries this morning.

The collision remains under investigation.
