Son of Idaho sergeant killed in car crash
The teenage son of an Idaho county sergeant was killed in a two-car wreck.
The Coeur d’Alene Press reports 16-year-old Jacob Leeder, the son of a sergeant with the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, died at the scene of a crash on Interstate 90 Friday night in Coeur d’Alene.
Leeder was a passenger in a vehicle driven by his brother, 20-year-old Jonah Leeder, who was seriously injured in the wreck.
An Idaho State Police news release says the crash happened after Jonah Leeder attempted to pass another vehicle while driving a 1995 Honda Acura. The Honda spun out of control and stalled perpendicular to oncoming traffic.
The vehicle was then T-boned by a 2000 Chevy Silverado. That driver was arrested at the scene for aggravated DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia.
