Driver in I-90 wreck escapes major injury

Two men escaped major injury in a head-on crash on Interstate 90 that jammed the eastbound lanes of traffic for several hours Friday night.

Jim D. Williams, 51, was westbound on the interstate just before 5 p.m. when his 2002 Ford pickup entered the median about a mile and half east of Stateline, and veered into the eastbound lanes of traffic, the Idaho State Police reported.

Williams’ truck collided head-on with an eastbound 2007 Chevy pickup, driven by Douglas R. Traeger, 62, of Kalispell, Mont.

Traeger was not injured, ISP said. Williams was transported to Kootenai Medical Center in Coeur d’Alene, where he was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.
