Spokane teen dies in collision on Hayden Lake

HAYDEN LAKE, Idaho -  Deputies from the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department Recreation Safety Section and personnel from the Northern Lakes Fire Department responded to the Hayden Lake Marina on Hayden Lake for an injury Personal Watercraft collision that occurred around 12:45 Sunday afternoon.

When units arrived on scene, they learned that James H. Graham an 18-year-old male from Spokane WA and his brother, John M. Graham a 19-year-old male also from Spokane WA, had been operating Personal Watercrafts in the area of Windy Bay on Hayden Lake.  According to witnesses, James Graham made a sharp turn and John Graham ended up striking James while he was sitting on his watercraft.   James was transported to the Hayden Lake Marina by a private vessel where he was treated for his injuries by medical personnel.  James was then transported to Kootenai Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased due to his injuries.

The investigation is ongoing and the Sheriff's Department says it appears alcohol was not a factor in the accident. 

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department would like to remind all recreational boaters to use caution when operating any type of vessel on the waterways. 

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department is hosting a boating safety class that is free to the public.  This class is scheduled for Saturday July 18th at 8:30 A.M. at the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation building on Kathleen Ave.  To sign up for the class or for any boating related questions please contact the Recreation Safety Section at 446-2250.
