A single vehicle accident on Highway 95 on either December 24 or Christmas day, discovered this morning, claimed the life of a Moyie Springs man.

According to the Idaho State Police, Bryan Krichbaum, 35, had been travelling south in a blue 2014 Nissan Versa when he lost control and on Highway 95 near mile 494, north of MacArthur Lake, and crashed into trees well off the roadway. He was wearing seatbelts and the airbag did deploy.

The crash occurred while the highway was clear of snow, and the vehicle wasn’t visible from the roadway after snow covered the crash location. It was spotted before 11 a.m. today.

Investigation continues. He leaves behind a daughter, whom he cherished.
