Riders injured in Fourth of July Pass motorcycle crash doing well

Two of the four people injured in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 90 east of Coeur d’Alene late Monday morning have been released from the hospital. The other two riders are in stable condition.

Four motorcyclists were riding west on I-90 near Fourth of July Pass just before noon on Memorial Day when the collision occurred, the Idaho State Police said in a news release.

James H. Pound, 52, of Sagle, Idaho, was riding a 2008 Harley-Davidson. He bumped into Christopher W. Loll, 52, of Sandpoint, who was riding a 2015 Victoria, ISP said.

Pound is in fair condition at Kootenai Health. Loll was transferred to Providence Sacred Heart and is in satisfactory condition.

Robert E. Shaw, 62, of Show Low, Arizona, was driving a 2006 Harley-Davidson with passenger Melissa K. Shaw, 52, of Spirit Lake, Idaho, behind Pound and Loll.

Shaw attempted to avoid the motorcycles, but struck Pound’s bike, ISP said.

The Shaws were both taken to Kootenai Health where they were treated and released.

All four riders were wearing helmets.
