Benewah County woman swears Bigfoot caused her to crash on US95 near Potlatch

A Benewah County woman swears Bigfoot caused her to crash on US Highway 95 in North Latah County late Wednesday night.  The Latah County Sheriff’s Office reports that a 50 year old Tensed woman walked into their office early Thursday morning around 12:30 to report the incident.  She told a deputy she was driving on US95 North of the Potlatch “Y “near mile post 367 earlier that evening around 11:00 Wednesday night when the incident occurred.  The woman believes she saw a Sasquatch chasing some deer along the highway and when she looked into her mirror to see the “hairy beast” she hit a deer which was running from the Bigfoot.  She says the Sasquatch was about 7 to 8 feet tall.  The woman kept driving her damaged vehicle and picked up her husband from work and went straight to the sheriff’s office in Moscow.  She sustained a minor neck injury in the crash.  A Latah County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to the scene of the crash and located evidence of a collision but the report didn’t indicate if he found any evidence of the elusive Bigfoot.  The collision and Bigfoot sighting occurred at mile post 366.9 which is near Brincken Road North of Potlatch.
