Approx crash point? 

Sort of, but the American Meteor Society trajectory is just a rough estimate, they assume some parameters, such as the altitude it starts to glow at. 

We need to triangulate with multiple ground stations to get it more accurate.  Currently we’re waiting for more good video to show up.  So far as I know, the Cranbrook data is the best recording.  But maybe Jeff’s is better.

The lat/long given in the Jet Propulsion Labs report is just where the flash occurred.

Somebody in Bonner’s Ferry Idaho reported a piece of the meteor fell there.  Not sure I believe it yet.
