A man who was injured in an accident earlier this month died Friday at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Carl Allen Carr, 61, of Coeur d’Alene, was airlifted to the hospital after the Aug. 1 accident, according to a Washington State Patrol news release.

He had been eastbound on Interstate 90 at Appleway in a Chevrolet pickup truck when he left the roadway to the right, veered left across both lanes, went into the median, then veered back right across both lanes, leaving the roadway and rolling, the news release said.

No one else was injured in the accident. It is unknown whether drugs or alcohol were involved or whether Carr was wearing a seatbelt.
