One person was injured this morning in a head-on crash that blocked State Highway 53, just south of Rathdrum.

A green 1996 Chevy Trailblazer was reportedly traveling eastbound on SH-53 and crossed left of center, striking a 2020 Freightliner semi head-on.

Idaho State Police responded to the crash at 2:55 a.m. The driver of the Trailblazer was reportedly transported by ground ambulance to Kootenai Health and then to Sacred Heart Medical Center.

The driver of the semi was not injured.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.

The roadway was blocked for about three and a half hours.

The investigation is ongoing.
