COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho — A woman involved in a three-car crash west of Coeur d’Alene Friday has been booked on vehicular manslaughter charges, according to the Kootenai County Jail roster.
Idaho State Police say the crash happened when 57-year-old Christine M. Cann entered I-90 from Northwest Boulevard, going westbound in the eastbound lane.

Both Scherer and Comer’s cars continued to the right shoulder and came to rest near the bike path. Canns stopped in the middle of the eastbound lanes.
Both Cann and Scherer were taken to Kootenai Health.
