COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The brother of the Coeur d'Alene high school student killed in a crash is now at Harborview Medical Center for injuries he sustained in the accident.
On Friday, 20-year-old Jonah Leeder was driving along I-90 in Couer d'Alene when he lost control of his car and stalled in a lane with on-coming traffic. Idaho State Police say 45-year-old William Swan t-boned the car, killing 16-year-old Jacob Leeder, who was a passenger in Jonah's car. Swan is now charged with felony vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. A judge set Swan's bail at $200,000 during a first court appearance on Tuesday.
A GoFundMe page is now set up to raise money for medical expenses for the Leeder family. Jacob and Jonah's dad, Tim Leeder, is a sergeant with the Kootenai County Sherrif's Office. As of Tuesday, the GoFundMe page has raised more than $26,000. According to GoFundMe organizers, Jonah was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for chest injuries he sustained in the crash. Jonah has already undergone two surgeries at Sacred Heart Medical Center for broken bones.
