Multiple crashes on eastbound Interstate 90 near Coeur d’Alene this afternoon delayed traffic for several hours.

The first crash occurred about 12:55 p.m. near the city center exit in Coeur d’Alene, the Idaho State Police said.

A 1994 Chevy pickup, driven by Michael Etherton, 22, of Pinehurst, was eastbound on the interstate when it collided into the back of a 2007 Honda CRV driven by Saundra Carver, 30, of Greenacres. Carver’s vehicle was slowing down for congested traffic when it was hit, ISP said.

Carver, and her 4-year-old son, were transported to Kootenai Medical Center, where Carver was treated and released. The hospital declined to release a condition for the child.

Several small crashes were reported after the first crash, slowing traffic as crews worked to clear vehicles from the freeway.
