POLSON – Four people were arrested Saturday morning after a woman in her early 20s  was found unconscious and badly injured near McDonald Lake in the Mission Mountains. 

The woman, whose name has not been released, was in intensive care at Kalispell Regional Medical Center, but Lake County authorities said she is not expected to survive her injuries.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office reports that circumstances surrounding the woman’s injuries are not yet known, but it’s suspected that the incident involved a vehicle.
