KCSO Responds to Serious Injury Crash

Hayden, ID:  On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at about 2:45PM, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office and Kootenai County Fire and EMS responded to the intersection of N. Meyer Rd. and W. Hayden Ave. for a two vehicle crash with serious injuries reported. On scene, emergency response personnel discovered that a 1982 Toyota pickup had collided with a 2019 Peterbilt line truck, owned by Kootenai Electric Cooperative of Hayden. 

The KCSO Crash Investigation Team was called to the scene and took over.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the Toyota pickup was being driven by Mark S. Lopp, 54, of Coeur d’Alene and was travelling northbound on N. Meyer Rd.  Lopp failed to yield from the stop sign on Meyer at Hayden and began a left turn onto Hayden pulling directly into the travel path of the KEC line truck that was eastbound on Hayden driven by Clint L. Ducken, 35, of Sandpoint. The line truck was also pulling a lowboy trailer with a backhoe. 

Lopp and his passenger Pete P. Pesetti, 47, Rathdrum were transported to Kootenai Health.  Lopp is currently in ICU with life threatening injuries.  Pesetti was admitted as well and will most likely be kept overnight for observations but his injuries are not believed to be life threatening at this time.  Ducken was uninjured. 

There are no initial signs of impairment for either driver and speed does not appear to be a factor. The crash resulted in the intersection being closed for several hours while the scene was processed. The investigation is continuing and further information will be released as it becomes available.
