A 1989 Ford F150 pickup truck towing a 15 foot fishing boat was heading westbound when it failed to negotiate a curve and rolled. Kevin Johnson, 40, and Kobe Johnson, 10, both from Rawlins, Wy, and Shayne Siren, 34, of Dubois, were all ejected from the vehicle. Kevin Johnson and Shayne Siren succumbed to their injuries on scene. Kobe Johnson was transport to Eastern Idaho Region Medical Center and then flown to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
