BOUNDARY COUNTY, Idaho -- A memorial for Josh Wilkerson, 25, from Naples, who lost his life Tuesday in a vehicle collision, will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 24, at a place he dearly loved, the Bonners Ferry High School soccer field.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that friends bring and donate a soccer ball, each to be given to children throughout the community to help spread Josh's love of the game.
He was heading south on US 95 when he stopped to turn on Mt. Meadow Road. Another car rear-ended Wilkerson’s vehicle and pushed his vehicle into the northbound lanes. Wilkerson's vehicle was then struck by a third car in oncoming traffic.
Wilkerson died at the scene. Two passengers in one of the other vehicles were transported to Boundary Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The fatal wreck blocked the highway for more than two hours.
