News from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office

POLSON — On Oct. 31, just before 6 p.m., Lake County 911 took a report of a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash on Huckleberry Lane, southeast of Polson. Lake County Deputies and Montana Highway Patrol were dispatched to the scene. Their investigation determined that the operator of the vehicle, identified as 56-year-old Sharon Whitworth, of Polson, intentionally ran over 63-year-old Tonya Charles, of Polson, causing her death. Whitworth was jailed on a charge of deliberate homicide and remains in the Lake County Detention Center. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office sends our condolences to Ms. Charles’s family. No further information on the investigation will be released at this time.
