BONNER COUNTY, Idaho - A six-vehicle collision, four semi-trucks and two passenger vehicles, killed one man and sent two others to the hospital Saturday morning.

Idaho State Police say Zachary Henager of Temple, Texas, was traveling southbound in his 1994 Mazda Coupe on Highway 95 in between Sagle and Cocolalla when he lost control, crossed the center line and struck 58-year-old Richard Walston of Colville head-on. After colliding, Walston lost control of his 2012 Mack Flatbed Towing Tractor, crossed the center line and struck 49-year-old James Mady's 2006 Freightliner semi-truck head on. Mady's semi-trailer then flipped onto it's side and blocked all lanes of travel on the highway. Mady, of Creswell Oregon, died in the crash. Walston was flown to Sacred Heart by helicopter.

While lanes were blocked, 39-year-old Brian Fendos of Bonners Ferry was traveling southbound and took evasive action to miss Henager semi-truck and went off the southbound shoulder. Fendos struck 21-year-old Pavlo Shevchuk's 2005 Volvo semi-truck. During that collision Shevchuk lost control and drove into the northbound ditch. During that, 45-year-old Roger House of Post Falls, Idaho was traveling northbound and swerved to miss Shevchuk and drove into the northbound ditch of the highway. Fendos, House, and Shevchuk were not injured in the crash.

US 95 has been reopened in both directions.
