A car accident last week left one employee of Litehouse Foods dead and another hospitalized.

Katherine Stelzer, 61, died at the scene and  Zualita L. Updike, 50, was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center after being struck by a truck while on a lunchtime walk. According to Idaho State Police, Peter F. Goullette, 22, was behind the wheel of the vehicle that hit them.

According to KHQ, Goullette was distracted while fixing his son’s seat belt, and detectives didn’t believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. However, later reports from KXLY indicate that Goullette tested positive for THC.

Goulette was previously involved in a March drag racing incident that escalated into a confrontation at Super 1. The fight resulted in an accidental gun discharge.
