EMMETT, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho State Police says an Emmett man and two daughters died in a freak accident near Sweet in Gem County.

The ISP says 38-year-old David Coburn died after swerving to avoid a pipe trailer that veered into his lane on the Sweet-Ola Highway on Saturday. Coburn lost control of the pickup, which tumbled down a 25-foot embankment into a creek.

Coburn's daughters, 8-year-old Kaitlyn and 4-year-old Ellie, died later at hospitals.

A third child, 6-year-old Taylor Coburn, was in critical condition at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center.
