Three adults and two children were transported to Kootenai Medical Center on Friday evening following a two-vehicle crash at Ramsey Road and state Highway 53.

Eric Prentice, 30, of Almira, Wash., was traveling south on Ramsey at 6:58 p.m. and failed to see the stop sign at Highway 53, Idaho State Police reported. He proceeded through the intersection and his 1996 Ford Explorer was struck by a 2004 Ford Focus driven by Julianna Kamps, 20, of Post Falls. Kamps was traveling eastbound on Highway 53.

Prentice was traveling 50-55 miles per hour through the intersection, police reported, and he was cited with inattentive driving. He and his three passengers - Michelle Prentice and two children - were transported to the hospital, along with Kamps.
