POST FALLS, Idaho (AP) _ The Idaho State Police say two
teenagers from Great Falls, Mont., were killed in a four-vehicle
crash on Interstate 90 near Post Falls.

The victims were identified as 16-year-old Destiney Moore and
17-year-old Michael Martinez.

The state police say Destiney's mother, 34-year-old Tracy Moore,
was westbound when she lost control of her SUV and crossed into
oncoming traffic Tuesday evening. The SUV was struck by a car and a
pickup truck with a snow plow attached. A third vehicle clipped the
wrecked vehicles.

Officials say Destiney Moore was on her way to Seattle to
undergo dialysis treatments. She died at the scene of the crash
while Martinez died at the Kootenai Medical Center.

Tracy Moore and another child in the SUV were also hospitalized,
as were the two people in the car. The driver of the pickup truck
was treated and released. None of the four people in the final
vehicle that clipped the wreckage were injured.
