Crash partially blocks I-90 in both directions

A vehicle crash closed the left lane of both directions of I-90 Friday afternoon just west of the State Line.

Both vehicles were traveling eastbound, three miles east of Liberty Lake, when one attempted to pass the other. Both vehicles were pushed down the roadway side-by-side for approximately 100 feet. One left the roadway to the left and rolled into the median.

38-year-old Shane Creech of Coeur d’Alene, who was driving one of the vehicles, was injured and transported to Kootenai Medical Center.

36-year-old Aaron Owen of Post Falls, who was driving the other vehicle, was un-injured.

According to WSP, Creech will be charged with reckless driving, and Owen will be charged with negligent driving.
