Family Of Four Driving From Caldwell Dies In Thanksgiving Crash
The Dean family is from North Dakota and was visiting Caldwell, Idaho over their Thanksgiving week before heading over to Ekalaka, Montana on Thanksgiving Day. That is the last anyone ever saw of them.
KTVB report that the Dean family was made up of Anthony and Chelsi Dean, both 25, from the Grand Forks area of North Dakota, and their daughters, 5-year-old Kaytlin and 20-month-old Avri. When friends and family reported them missing, investigators pinged their cellphones and that's when the Montana Highway Patrol was able to find them. Unfortunately, what they found was not good.
The family was driving a Toyota 4Runner and at approximately 7 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning they crashed through the median on an Interstate near Huntley, went airborne off an embankment, struck a concrete bridge support pillar, and eventually crashing into Pryor Creek. All four family members have been reported dead. Absolutely devastating news for the entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
