A 16-year-old boy was hospitalized in serious condition Sunday after being thrown from a car that overturned.
William Robert Harriman was flown to Deaconess Medical Center in Spokane after the 12:25 p.m. accident.
According to the Idaho State Police, 18-year-old Randall Duane Hadley of Sandpoint was driving his 1989 Ford Escort westbound on Highway 2 near Laclede when the accident occurred.
Harriman, address unknown, was a passenger in the car.
Trooper Wayne Harms said Hadley was attempting to pass a vehicle in a construction zone. Due to oncoming traffic, Hadley tried to return to the westbound lane, but his rear tire caught a ridge in the middle of the roadway. The car slid sideways off the road, landing on its roof.
Hadley was taken to Newport Community Hospital but did not suffer serious injuries, according to authorities.
