KOOSKIA, Idaho (KBOI) -- Two people have been killed after a vehicle plunged into a river off Highway 12 in north central Idaho.

Idaho State Police says 29-year-old Boone Hallmark of Boise fell asleep while driving early Tuesday morning. The vehicle went off the road and ended up submerged in the Clearwater River.
