SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — One man is dead and three people injured following a head-on crash on a snowy highway west of Sandpoint.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports (http://is.gd/mpbZNA ) that Tyler S. Bartlett lost control of his Subaru Forrester on Highway 2 Saturday and struck an oncoming Honda CRV.

Bartlett and his passenger, 22-year-old Elizabeth M. Welker, of Coeur d'Alene, were initially transported to Bonner General Hospital in Sandpoint, then transferred to Kootenai Health in Coeur d'Alene, where Bartlett died.

The driver of the other vehicle, 57-year-old Joel P. Slover, and his passenger, 55-year-old Lorraine M. Slover, both of Newport, were taken to Bonner General Hospital.
