BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities in Idaho have placed large boulders along the road an SUV crashed off of a steep cliff and into a reservoir, killing a woman and her three children.

The Idaho Statesman (https://bit.ly/1UEYlZY ) reports that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers finished placing the rocks on Friday. Previously, there was no barrier between the road and the edge of the cliff.

According to authorities, the crash killed 40-year-old Noel J. Voermans, as well as her 8-year-old and 13-year-old daughters and her 11-year-old son. All of them drowned, with the children also suffering from blunt force trauma.

Investigators say a witness reported seeing the vehicle accelerate from the side of the road before it went off a cliff and plummeted about 70 feet into Lucky Peak Reservoir earlier this month.
