Woman dies after crash at intersection


A Coeur d’Alene woman died Saturday morning at Kootenai Medical Center after the car she was riding in hit a semitruck that ran a red light.

Vivian Scott, 88, was in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Samuel R. Whitaker, 65, traveling south on U.S. Highway 95. A semi driven by Bill T. Haughton, 74, was eastbound on Highway 53. Haughton failed to yield for a red light and was hit in the driver’s side fuel tank by Whitaker, according to the Idaho State Police.

The truck leaked 30 gallons of fuel on the roadway, closing U.S. 95 north of Hayden for nearly 90 minutes Thursday afternoon.
