Third person dies as result of Lolo accident

MISSOULA - A Florence woman who was hurt in a fatal accident that killed her daughter and a Hellgate Elementary School teacher near Lolo two weeks ago has passed away.

A post on Caringbridge states that Pam Okon died Tuesday morning from her injuries she suffered in the Feb. 22 head-on collision.

Hannah Capen, 23, of Missoula and Meghan Okon, 9, of Florence also died in the crash. Capen was a first year math teacher at Hellgate Elementary School.

The Montana Highway Patrol reports Capen lost control of her pickup truck and crossed the center line near Trader Brothers on U.S. Highway 93 South and hit Okon's vehicle.

Troopers say that both speed and road conditions were factors in the accident.
