A teenager is dead and a man is in jail after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 in Coeur d’Alene on Friday night.

Around 10:30 p.m., a 1995 Acura Integra was traveling just east of the Fourth Street exit when it attempted to pass a vehicle and spun out of control, according to Idaho State Police.

After spinning, the Integra, driven by 20-year-old Jonah Z. Leeder of Coeur d’Alene, stalled in the right eastbound lane, ISP said, and was subsequently T-boned by a 2000 Chevy Silverado.

Leeder’s passenger, a 16-year-old boy, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to ISP. Leeder was transported to Kootenai Health.

A GoFundMe page set up for the family of the teenager identified him as Jacob Leeder. He is the son of a Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant, according to ISP.

The driver of the Silverado, 45-year-old William E. Swan, was arrested at the scene and faces charges of aggravated DUI and drug paraphernalia, according to ISP. The crash is under investigation.
