Print Article

CLAGSTONE — One person was killed and two more were injured Monday after the car they were in overturned on Spirit Lake Cutoff Road, according to Idaho State Police.

State police said the trio was northbound in a Subaru Legacy when its driver lost control and entered a southbound ditch. The mid-size car struck several mailboxes, overturned and came to rest on its top.

A juvenile male was ejected during the rollover and died at the scene, according to ISP. The car’s two other occupants were Jose Franco Sosa Jr., 55 of Coeur d’Alene, and another unidentified juvenile.

Both were taken to Kootenai Health, with the former being evacuated by air ambulance and the latter by ground ambulance.

It was unclear early Tuesday who was driving the car at the time of the crash, ISP said. Only one of the male juveniles was wearing a safety restraint, according to ISP.

The crash happened at about 7:32 p.m. at the intersection of Peregrine Road, north of Spirit Lake. It closed the roadway for approximately six hours.
