Ludomir Scislo, 83, of Rockford Bay was the driver killed in a single-vehicle crash Monday night, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department.

Initial investigation indicates that Scislo drove off the roadway at Rockford Bay Road near W. Spyglass Lane about 5:40 p.m. Monday and struck a tree, said Capt. Ben Wolfinger.
