SUV Rolls Into Lake Coeur d'Alene; Black Ice To Blame

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - Rescue crews responded to a one-vehicle rollover into Lake Coeur d'Alene Tuesday morning. 

Crews arrived on scene to find an SUV on its wheels, partially submerged. The lone occupant of the car had been helped out through the passenger side window by first arriving police officers.

The terrain and slope created a low-angle rescue scenario and crews used ropes to lower a Stokes basket and personnel to the patient. The conscious, female patient was hauled up the slope, and subsequently transported to the hospital for evaluation.

It appears that a contributing factor to this accident was ice on the roadway. The Coeur d'Alene Fire Department wants to remind all drivers of black ice conditions that still exist in our area, especially around the lake. 

Frost and freezing fog were being blamed for several rollovers in Spokane County on Tuesday morning, as well. Among the trouble spots: Palouse Highway southeast of Spokane near Valleyford; and Government Way west of downtown Spokane where a van rolled just before 5 a.m. 

Authorities told KHQ's Blake Jensen at the scene that a man was traveling with a female passenger in a mini-van when he apparently hit a patch of black ice and the van flipped.

Crews said the driver had a pre-existing back and neck injuries so firefighters had to use extreme caution in extricating him, which took more than an hour and a half. He was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
