On March 31st, 2021 at 12:18 am, the Idaho State Police responded to an injury crash westbound I90 at milepost 5, in Post Falls, Idaho. A blue 2006 Dodge Ram driven by Roger Farrell, 74, of Kalispell, Montana entered the eastbound lanes of travel heading westbound. A Post Falls Police officer witnessed the vehicle travelling the wrong way and attempted to stop the vehicle but was unsuccessful. Farrell continued west in the eastbound lanes where he then collided with a blue 2019 Kia Sportage driven by Frederick Ley, 25, of Seattle, Washington.
