Bodies of Boise residents recovered from submerged vehicle

LEWISTON, Idaho - Authorities in northern Idaho have recovered the bodies of two Boise residents who died after the vehicle they were in went into the fast-moving Lochsa River last week.

Idaho State Police says officials recovered the bodies of 22-year-old Talia Rushing of Boise and 2-year-old Layton Hallmark, who were found in a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Police say 29-year-old Boone Hallmark fell asleep while driving at 3 a.m. on July 2 on U.S. Highway 12, and the car went into the river.

Police say Hallmark tried to help the victims, but was washed out of the vehicle and survived.
