The Idaho State Police is investigating a single vehicle rollover on Interstate 90 near milepost 16 just east of Coeur d'Alene. The crash occurred on September 27, 2022, at about 1:46 PM in the westbound lanes of travel.

The vehicle, a 2020 Peterbilt semi-truck equipped with a boom , driven by a 24-year-old Coeur d'Alene man, was traveling westbound downgrade towards Coeur d'Alene. The preliminary investigation would indicate this driver took evasive action to avoid striking a passenger vehicle that had changed lanes immediately in front of him. The truck rolled over blocking the roadway for over 3 hours. The driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The driver was wearing his seatbelt.

Idaho State Police is asking anyone who may have witness this crash to contact Sgt. Ron Sutton at 208-209-8620.
