ST. IGNATIUS — Lake County Sheriff Don Bell released the name of the woman who was killed on U.S. Highway 93 on Thursday at around 4 p.m.

Shirley Crawford Moody, 85, of Polson, died from injuries sustained during a single-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 93 near Lemery Road. 

The Montana Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck, and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office is overseeing coroner’s duties.
