SANTA, Idaho — Authorities say a 19-year-old Juliaetta man died after the log truck he was driving on Tuesday afternoon left the roadway and overturned.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports Cook was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Benewah County Sheriff’s Office and St. Maries Fire Department responded to the crash.
