A semi truck driving eastbound on Highway 14 was struck by Mack’s westbound Chevrolet pickup truck that crossed the centerline and came in contact with the semi in the eastbound lane, according to the State Patrol. The driver of the semi, Donald C. Fabian, 71, of Lewiston, received non- life-threatening injuries, while Mack died at the scene after the pickup truck caught fire while she was trapped inside.
