The Missoula woman killed Sunday afternoon in an accident in Pattee Canyon was identified Monday as 83-year-old Beryl Stover.
Stover died when a GMC Yukon driven by her husband plunged off a mountain road near where Pattee Canyon and Deer Creek roads merge. The couple had driven up Forest Service Road 21271 on an afternoon outing with their daughter, who was in another car.
As Stover's 85-year-old husband drove the Yukon back down the road, the full-sized SUV drove straight over the edge, Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Paul Pfau said. The accident occurred about 3:50 p.m.
The couple had been following their daughter, who called 9-1-1 after realizing her parents were no longer behind her.
Stover's husband was hospitalized with serious injuries.
