DEARY, Idaho -- Idaho State Police officials say a Deary woman died in a collision with another vehicle in Latah County.

Police officials said in a statement Wednesday night that 45-year-old Dorita Osterberg was attempting to pass a farm tractor and turn in to a private driveway near Deary when she was struck by a pickup truck headed in the opposite direction.

Osterberg was transported by air to a hospital, where she died of her injuries.

A passenger in the car Osterberg was driving was injured and taken to Grittman Medical Center.

Police say Osterberg was not wearing a seatbelt, but her passenger was.

The driver of the pickup was not injured.

Police officials say the crash is under investigation.
